Gather the Ingredients

Gathering components for vegan sausage-making is the initial move. To make delicious vegan sausages, you’ll need a food processor, regular soy sauce or gluten-free soy sauce such as coconut aminos, vital wheat gluten (aka seitan), tomato paste, vegetable broth and seasonings like garlic powder and onion powder. For additional flavour and texture, one could include dried ingredients such as white beans or canned chickpeas.

If you want to make Italian sausage links instead of regular sausage patties, you’ll need textured vegetable protein (TVP) or something similar that will give your sausages a meaty texture. You can also use roasted vegetables like mushrooms and peppers for an even more savoury taste.

For a sweet breakfast burrito, maple syrup and caramelised onions are essential for making vegan-friendly veggie sausages. And if you want to make kidney bean casseroles topped with sausage shapes made from seitan dough wrapped around wooden skewers, then fennel seeds are a must-have ingredient.

No matter what kind of recipe you follow when it comes to making vegan sausages – whether it be incredibly delicious Italian recipes or classic American-style dishes – these basic food ingredients should always be included in order to achieve maximum flavour without using any animal products.

Once the ingredients are obtained, it’s time to start assembling them into a flavourful vegan sausage. Now, it’s time to move on and prepare the mixture.

Prepare the Mixture

Vegan sausages are a tasty and nutritious substitute for regular sausages, perfect for vegan-friendly dishes such as breakfast burritos or casseroles. To make vegan sausages, combine soy sauce (or gluten-free alternative), white beans, chickpeas, roasted vegetables, tomato paste, vegetable broth and spices for a flavorful meat-free option.

To start off your recipe card for making vegan sausages at home, begin by combining all of the dry ingredients into a food processor. This will help create an even mixture that will give your sausage links their shape and texture when cooked. Once everything is mixed together well in the food processor, add in some maple syrup for sweetness as well as caramelised onions for flavour if desired. Then slowly pour in wet ingredients like kidney beans or mashed potatoes until you get a doughy consistency that’s easy to work with.

Once the mixture is prepared, it’s time to form them into sausages. Now let’s move on to the next step of shaping these vegan sausages for a delicious and nutritious meal.

Key Takeaway: Mix onion and garlic powders in a food processor to form an even base for vegan sausages. Then form your desired shapes with wet ingredients like mashed potatoes or kidney beans before pan-frying or baking them at 375°F for 25 minutes. Experiment with different spices and seasonings to make delicious homemade veggie sausages.

Shape the Sausages

Once the mixture is ready, it’s time to shape the sausages for an optimal appearance and flavour. Once the shaping is done, you can be sure that your vegan sausages will turn out perfectly.

Form the mixture into a round ball with your hands, using oil to prevent sticking if necessary. Make sure to keep the ball as round as possible – this will help create a uniform sausage shape when cooked. You can use some oil on your hands, if needed, to prevent sticking.

Place the rolled balls between two sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap laid flat on a cutting board. Sandwich the rolled balls between two pieces of parchment paper. Using either a rolling pin or something similar (like an empty wine bottle), roll out each ball until it is about 1/2 inch thick all around – this should be done carefully so as not to break apart any edges or corners of the “sausage” shape you are creating with each roll-out process.

When finished rolling out all of your balls, remove them from their parchment papers and transfer them onto another plate for cooking later on. If desired, you can even refrigerate these at this point for up to 24 hours before cooking; just make sure they are sealed tightly in airtight containers first.

Once you have shaped the sausages, it is time to move on to cooking them. Having shaped the sausages, it is now time to move on to cooking them in a manner that ensures they are cooked through and evenly browned.

Cook the Sausages

For those looking to replicate the taste of meat without animal products, vegan sausages are a great option. For a more delicious vegan sausage experience, here are some useful tips for cooking them in either an oven or on the stovetop.


Heat up your skillet over medium heat and add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Once hot, carefully place your vegan sausages in the pan and let them cook for about five minutes on each side until they’re golden brown and crispy. You can further enhance the flavour of your vegan sausages by adding herbs like rosemary or thyme during cooking.


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Prepare your baking sheet with parchment paper and place the vegan sausages on it. Bake for 15–20 minutes, flipping halfway through so both sides get cooked evenly until they’re nice and crisp on the outside but still juicy inside. If desired, brush with oil before baking for an even more crunchy texture.

Always monitor your sausages while cooking – burnt food is no one’s preference. And remember that every type of sausage will have different instructions, so make sure to check out what works best with yours before getting started. Now that you know how easy it is to cook delicious vegan sausages at home, why not give it a try?

Once your sausages are cooked, savour the vegan sausage delight. Now it’s time to move on to serving and enjoying these tasty treats.
