Vegan Italian Sausage And Peppers

I decided to make this Vegan Italian sausage and peppers for dinner, served over pasta, my hubby really enjoyed it. I wanted to make a dish that was quick and easy to prepare after a long day working as the nurse for summer camp.

 Daevyd is having lots of fun attending and today I got to sit in his photography class where he learned to take lifestyle photos and edit with an iPhone. After his class, his photography teacher did a photo shoot with me in the kitchen. 

I’m planning to keep up with posting new recipes for the rest of the month but if some days I don’t get to post new recipes its probably because I’m very busy here at the camp or exhausted but  I’ll definitely make up for it next month. 

Below a photo of my son Daevyd here on the campground, photo taken by his friend at his photography class.

How To Cook Italian Sausage?

For the sausage, you can make my  Homemade Version or use store-bought ones. If you are using this homemade version then make them ahead of time and keep refrigerated.

Some vegan sausages brands:

  1. Prepare homemade sausage. heat oil in a large saucepan and saute sausage on all sides until golden brown, about 6-10 minutes,  set aside. 
  2. Add onion, garlic, bell peppers and saute until onions are soft, about 3 minutes. 
  3. Stir in basil, parsley, thyme, and oregano and cook until fragrant, about one minute.
  4. Add tomatoes, vegetable broth, tomato paste, sugar, and salt.
  5. Bring sauce to a boil, cover and allow to simmer until sauce begins to thicken about 5 minutes. Add sausages, cayenne pepper, nutritional yeast flakes to the sauce and cook for another 5 minutes on low heat. 
  6. Serve sausage and peppers over pasta.

    Just finished eating this delish dish!! I forgot the thyme, so I guess I’ll have to make it again to see the difference it makes. I did use fresh oregano from my garden and fire roasted tomatoes. We all quite enjoyed!! Thank you Michelle!!
