These sausages are vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free. They are the perfect homemade sausages and are alternatives to the Beyond Meat Sausage. Serve these absolutely tasty vegan sausages with my Vegan Gravy, Vegan Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes, Vegan Breakfast Skillet Potatoes, or Easy Tofu Scramble.

Gluten-Free Vegan Sausage

This week I will be teaching cooking classes, so as I was going through My Cookbook and deciding what recipes to prepare. I found my breakfast sausage recipe, which really caught my attention. I decided to make an updated version by adding extra spices and wrapping the sausage with rice paper, which took these sausages to another level.

I had tried to order some vegan sausage casing online but couldn’t find any, so I decided to find an alternative. I found that rice paper, traditionally used for making spring rolls, works perfectly as a casing for homemade sausage. 

The idea for using rice paper as casing came from the hiddenveggies.com. Rice paper can be found at Asian supermarkets, grocery stores, health food stores or on Amazon

How To Make Gluten-Free Vegan Sausage?

  1. Add water to a medium non-stick saucepan, and add Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, nutritional yeast flakes, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, fennel seeds, sage, salt, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, allspice, aniseed, maple syrup, and sesame oil. Bring to a boil.
  2. Stir in walnuts and rolled oats, reduce heat and continue to stir to fully combine. Stir until oatmeal begins to soften, after about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and allow to cool until you are able to handle with your hands. 
  4. Roll mixture into sausage logs, and set aside on parchment paper or a ceramic plate.
  5. Dip each rice paper in a bowl of warm water until soft, being careful not to soak too long because it will start to tear. 
  6. Fold the soaked rice paper over the sausage, twisting both ends and folding them under. Repeat until all mixture is used up.
  7. Heat oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add sausages and cook until golden brown, turn on sides to make sure sausage is cooked evenly about 8-10 minutes. 
  8. You can also sauté slices of onions to serve with your sausages.

Tips For Making Vegan Sausage

  1. Make sure your filling is not too watery. It should look soft and doughy.
  2. You can do any spice combination you choose.
  3. Don’t be alarmed about the amount that I used, they were the perfect spice blend to give that great sausage taste that is found in traditional sausages.
  4. You can omit the rice paper if you don’t have or can’t access it, and just lightly fry your sausages until golden brown.
  5. Make sure to use a non-stick saucepan to prevent sausage mixture from sticking to the base of the pan. I used a ceramic/titanium pan.
  6. To cool the sausage mixture faster, transfer it to a shallow pan.
