Vegan Spetsofai (Greek Stew With Sausage And Peppers)

This is another traditional country Greek recipe, ideal meze to enjoy with beer or wine. The original recipe asks for pork country sausage, which I substitute with vegan Italian seitan sausage, but feel free to use your favorite vegan sausages.

  • 3 big vegan sausages,  sliced

  2. Transfer the sausage to a plate
  3. In the cast iron pan now add the onions, garlic, peppers and carrot and saute for about 5 minutes until soft
