It’s #SausageDay, but more people are looking for alternatives so they live a healthier, happier life. When we say everything can be made vegan, we mean it. That’s why we went through the Food Monster App and found 10 sausages that are 100% plant-based and 100% delicious.

1. Homemade Sausage

These Homemade Vegan Sausages are perfectly infused with spices and flavor, have the perfect texture, and the best part is you don’t need any foil to make them! The hardest part is waiting for them to cook. These are SO worth it though! Bursting with flavor in every bite, these beat store-bought sausage by a long shot.

2. Sausages with Homemade Buns and Roasted Broccoli

3. Carrot Dogs

With summertime here, we feel the need to share with all of you an equally tasty and much more healthy alternative to the regular ‘hot dog’, such as the heavily processed veggie sausages that are out there. Presenting: the Carrot Dog!

4. Homemade Spicy Italian Sausage

These Spicy Italian Sausages are firm enough to hold up on the grill. When you cook them, they are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside but not mushy, and filled with spicy, Italian flavor. Using black-eyed peas instead of pintos removed the “beany” taste and provided a neutral background for the spices to shine through.

5. Portuguese Potato, Cabbage, and Sausage Soup

This Portuguese Potato, Cabbage, and Sausage Soup is traditional from Portugal and consists basically of potatoes, cabbage, and sausage. Not only is it easy and quick, but absolutely delicious. Substitute for your choice of a vegan sausage to add a smoky flavor.

6. Pumpkin and Kale Steel-Cut Oatmeal With Sausage

Looking for healthy, hearty meal, without sacrificing classic flavor? This Pumpkin and Kale Steel-cut Oatmeal With Sausage might be exactly what you’ve been looking for. The kale is sautéed with garlic and seasoned with good old salt and pepper (and nutritional yeast, if you prefer, which I do.) The pumpkin puree adds creaminess and just a tiny bit of earthy sweetness, just enough to counter the saltier kale and sausage (but not enough to make the dish sweet). Then, the Italian-style sausage on top adds a peppery, chewy bite.

7. Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms

This recipe for Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms will have even your most carnivorous friends begging you to make them again and again! You can make them giant as a single serving appetizer or even the main course, or just grab a couple dozen smaller ones for bite-sized finger food for your next gathering.

8. Red Bean Sausages

These Red Bean Sausages will become a staple in your household. Mashed red beans are combined with wheat protein and a wealth of savory spices that give them an amazing flavor. Then, they’re steamed and pan-fried until just slightly crisp on the outside, but tender and meaty on the inside. Serve these with vegetables of your choice or vegan mac and cheese!

9. Sausage Rolls

If you’re looking for a vegan finger food recipe for your next dinner party or weekend appetizer, you’ve come to the right place. These vegan Sausage Rolls are straightforward to make, and the taste is highly reminiscent of the real thing. The filling includes vital wheat gluten, with various fresh spices added to simulate the true sausage taste. The rolls come out of the oven super crispy, and the smell that fills the kitchen makes it hard to wait until they’re cool enough to eat. Regardless of whether you enjoy them dipped in a sauce or not, they won’t disappoint.

10. Black-Eyed Pea and Leek Sausages

Infused with an abundance of spices and aromatic leeks, these Black-Eyed Pea and Leek Sausages are best served with a plate of vegetables and a side of sauerkraut or with pasta. They’re a cinch to make, too! Wheat protein flour gives them a delightfully meaty texture that’s reminiscent of classic sausages.
