Homemade Vegan Sausage

For my Chopped Vegan Brunch entry I made sausage gravy using homemade vegan sausage.  I used two for the gravy and the other two for a marinara sauce the next night for dinner.  The recipe is incredibly simple and the only ingredient I had to pick up for the recipe was vital wheat gluten. 

The recipe calls for the use of a steamer basket which is a kitchen gadget I don't have.  So I thought I'd share with you my inventive, homemade steamer.  You know those store bought pie crusts that come in a disposable pie plate?  Save that plate and poke a bunch of holes in it.  Put the plate on the top of a pot of simmering water.  And tada! You have a homemade steamer.


  1. Awesome idea! I have a steamer but it doesn't fit right with my pots. This would totally work!

    1. It works really well and fits perfectly on top of the pot I use.

  2. Blake, thank you for your vegan sausage recipe. I didn’t think you can make meatless sausages. I’d love to put in some of my favorite cereal and vegetable foods when I make one at home.
