Spicy Vegan Breakfast Sausage

IMG_2842

Over the past few years I have been reducing my meat consumption and for the past nine months have kept beef, chicken, and pork completely out of my diet.  I will occasionally eat fish when my body asks for it (yes, my body talks to me).  I adore food and love to experiment with new flavours and recipes.  When I find something that is nutritious and also tastes amazing, I celebrate.

We are in need of a good grocery shop so the fridge and cupboards are running out of convenient food options.  I do enjoy a good challenge and love to create tasty meals when food is running low.  Today’s inspiration came from a craving for a savoury spicy breakfast.  I found a highly rated recipe from geniuskitchen.com and switched it up a tad to suit what I had on hand and what spices I thought would taste yummy.  Turned out very spicy and delicious! I suggest easing up on the spice if you’re not a fan of a lot of heat.

RECIPE:

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 2 tbsp millet flour (substitute with any flour)
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax, 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 tsp molasses
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (1 tbsp for frying)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 1/2 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (cut down to 1/2 tsp if not a fan of heat)
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp Bragg’s Organic Sprinkle (substitute with sage & thyme)
  • 1/4 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1/4 tsp celery salt

Directions:

Mix together ground flax & water in a small dish and set aside.

Use food processor to pulse oats on high 6-7 times, add cooked rice and pulse 3-4 more times.

Add remaining ingredients (minus 1 tbsp coconut oil to use for frying) and pulse until just combined.

Add coconut oil to pan set to med-high heat.

Form medium balls with your hands and flatten into patties.

Fry until golden brown on both sides.

 

Add a little love and enjoy!!
