Day 63: Sausage Egg.....Plant Breakfast Burritos

The other day I entered the kitchen with the expectation of experimenting on a new vegan shepherds pie recipe, which, come to think of it, I still haven't made. Hum, anyway, I started making my recipe for vegan meat but when I finished I realized I had made vegan sausage. I love serendipity! I'm not quite sure what I did different except that I purposely left out the BBQ sauce when I realized what was happening. This worked out perfect since I had been craving some morning star sausages but we can't get them on the island. I saved a little of the dough to make sausage crumbles that were fantastic on pizza that night and we made these breakfast burritos the next morning. I wish all my mistakes were this delicious

Vegan Sausages

1/2 c cooked lentils
1 c brown rice
1/2 c oats
2 tb soy sauce
2 tb oil
3 tb flour
2 tb vital wheat gluten
1 large pinch of salt
1 tsp pepper
1 dash nutmeg
1 tsp chili powder
2 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp garlic

In a large bowl mush the lentils and rice with a fork till there are none left whole. Now add everything else and kneed it into a dough. Cover with plastic wrap and roll out. Use a cup and cut into rounds. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake on 350 for about 35-45 minutes turning once. These freeze really well and are great on their own.

Breakfast Burritos

1 eggplant cubbed
green onion
1/2 c cooked garbanzo beans
vegan sausage

In a sauce pan, cook the eggplant and green onions till soft. Add the garbanzo beans and mush everything with a fork. Smear the tortillas with veganaise and mustard then layer with the eggplant mixture and vegan sausages. Wrap like a burrito and eat like you've never eaten a burrito before.


  1. Hey...your counter says we are 75 days into the year and this is only recipe 63 what's up with that... I feel cheated where are the other 12 recipes you owe us from the DAILY VEGAN?

  2. The veggan sausages look pretty yummy to me. I'll definitely try this recipe of yours very soon. I'm sure my friends and family will love it. Thank you very much for sharing this healthy recipe. :)

  3. Thanks Quinoa (Love the name!) Let me know how they turn out!
