It’s tough being the parent of a vegan toddler. My toddler wants to eat meat when my husband cooks it. He doesn’t understand…yet. So usually I have some vegan sausages on standby in case my omnivore husband decides to have a spontaneous barbeque. This weekend I wasn’t so prepared. Luckily some quick thinking saved us all from a toddler tantrum…
And these vegan sausages were born! They are seriously my new favourite vegan sausage.
- They are quick to prepare.
- They use ingredients I always have in the pantry.
- The taste and texture are awesome. (Note: I haven’t had a meat sausage in about 17 years so I can’t compare accurately…)
My toddler thought so too. #toddlerapproved
- 400g can kidney beans
- ½ cup potato flour
- 2 tsp tomato paste
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 2 tsp olive oil for frying
- Drain, rinse and puree the kidney beans.
- Mix in the remaining ingredients (except olive oil) until well combined.
- Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a low-med heat.
- Roll the mixture into sausage shapes with your hands.
- Fry the sausages, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides.

Do you have an emergency stash of vegan sausages too?
