Preparation

For the Sausages:

  1. Mix the spices together and set aside.
  2. Pan fry the mushrooms, onions, and garlic in olive oil until starting to get brown. Set aside to cool. Then mash the beans well with a potato masher or pulse in the food processor, but leave lots of whole beans and chunks.
  3. Mix the spices in with the beans, and add the remainder of the sausage ingredients.
  4. Mix together well before adding the cooled mushies.
  5. Like most vegan sausages, they require steaming in tin foil then sauteing before serving. It does take some time, be forewarned. But all the steps are covered in the link above, and they're totally worth it!

For the VMT Sandwich Rolls:

  1. Mix everything together, and allow the dough to rise until doubled in bulk. Then turn it out on a floured board, divide into 6-8 equal portions, shape like sausage rolls, and allow them to rise again for about 20 minutes. Score the tops, sprinkle some coarse sea salt, and bake at 375 F. for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Slice and toast ever so lightly before serving.
  2. To set these guys up properly I went ahead and laid down a spicy mustard, ketchup, avocado, and then topped them off with sauteed onions and peppers: carnival-style. Some roasted broccoli and garlic to round things off!
  3. Boom~! Enjoy yourselves!
