Healthy Sausage

Recipe & More Here:

Today I do the impossible! I show you how to make Healthy Sausage! Now by healthy sausage, I mean it tastes like sausage and it has the same texture as sausage. It is however made from Textured Vegetable Protein instead of pork and the other random things you find in unhealthy sausage.

My healthy sausage patties are 158 calories each. They have 9 Grams of Fiber (50% requirements), 14 Grams of Protein (30% requirements) and only 3 Grams of Fat (.05% requirements). Your average unhealthy sausage patty is 230 Calories with 198 of those Calories coming from Fat! My sausages are even healthier than normal veggie patties!!!

Recipe for Healthy Sausage

Add 1/2 Cup of Textured Vegetable Protein with 1/2 Cup of Hot Water and let sit for 5 minutes after stirring.

Combine the following in a bowl and stir:

1/4 Cup Wheat Bran
1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 TB Nutritional Yeast
1 TB Milled Flax Seed
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Fennel Seeds (More for Heat)
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper (More for Heat)

Combine the Following in a separate bowl and stir:

1/4 Cup Warm Water
1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke
3 TB Liquid Aminos, Tamari or Soy Sauce
1 tsp Vermont Sugar Free Syrup or Normal Maple Syrup
1/4 tsp Molasses

After everything above is mixed together (Makes 4 Big Patties), fry each patty on 60% for 2 to 3 minutes per side.

    These look great, could I just spray a pan and bake them instead of frying them? Thank you for the recipe.

    Fascinating! Something that you may find interesting as an add-in is urad dal, a musky, chewy little black bean which, in combination with this, can mimic some of the irregular gristly texture of sausage.

    Even though the texture was gummy I will continue to make this; I fried then tore into bite size pieces and refried in butter. I mixed it in some mashed potatoes and it was very tasty so will try this in shepherds pie.
