Homemade Vegan Sausages

What I love about these vegan sausages are that A) they are quite easy to make, with a prep time of about 30 minutes!

And B) they are very versatile. You can serve them as breakfast sausages with your favorite tofu scramble. Or, in a bun with all the toppings for a yummy hotdog. You could even cut them into smaller pieces and add them to your favorite sausage dish. Sausage casserole, anyone?

So, I suggest you make a big batch (they store well in the freezer) and always have these delicious homemade vegan sausages on hand.

Ingredient Notes

Vital wheat gluten – the key ingredient for these moist, meaty sausages is vital wheat gluten, the same ingredient used to make Seitan. In Japan, wheat gluten 小麦グルテン is available in the cake baking section of some supermarkets, or online. I bought this brand (pictured below) on Amazon.

Beans – I used canned white beans (Cannellini beans) in my recipe, but other types of beans you could use are chickpeas, pinto, or black beans.

Vegan mince – I tried vegan minced meat from OmniMeat and Naturli’, and they both worked well for this sausage recipe. In Japan, both are available online at Tengu Natural Foods.

Vegan Worcestershire sauce – can be subbed with soy sauce.

How To Make Vegan Sausages

A detailed recipe is in the recipe card at the bottom of this post, but let me give you a quick overview of the process. It is a 4-step process:

Step 1: Prepare the veggies

Heat oil in a pan, and sauté the minced onion, garlic and mushrooms. Add the seasonings and cook until fragrant.

Step 2: Blend the beans

Add the canned beans, drained and rinsed, to a food processor and blend until smooth.

Step 3: Form the sausage

Add the sautéed veggies, beans, vital wheat gluten, and vegan mince to a large bowl and mix to combine.

Form sausages and warp them in parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Step 4: Cook the sausage

Steam the sausages in a steamer for 35 minutes. Let the sausages cool for 5 minutes, as they firm up. You can serve them immediately, or pan-fry them for added texture.

How To Store

Store cooked sausages in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the fridge. To store them in the freezer, make sure to steam the sausages first, then place them in an airtight container. They can be stored up to 2 months.

  • Mold the mixture into sausages. Wrap each sausage loosely in parchment paper or aluminum foil, and twist the ends like a candy wrapper. Be sure not to wrap too tightly, as the sausages need some room to expand.
  • Place the sausages in a steamer and steam for 35 minutes. Let them cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the wrapping.
