Simple Italian Sausages | Isa Chandra Moskowitz

The now classic bean and seitan steamed sausage. It’s as easy as steamed sausage! I make a 4x batch of this with Pinto Beans and add a cup of oats. I also like to use extra water to make a sloppy four loaves and wrap those in foil. Then steam for 55 minutes in pot or pressure cooker.

In case this is your first time making a vegan sausage, here’s what’s going down: You’re going to mash some beans in a mixing bowl and then throw in the other ingredients and mix. Then you’re going to roll ’em in tinfoil like a Tootsie Roll, and steam them. And then, like magic, you will have vegan sausages. Easiest thing in the world! A few versions of these sausages appear in Vegan Brunch.

Kate, the dogs, and I drove up to my sisters for Thanksgiving this year. Even though I still had to work we were able to get dinner from Green before heading to Caroline’s home and eating.

The drive from Tucson was light on traffic and uneventful. Even with less traffic it was still unsurprising to see idiots driving well over 20mph over the speed limit.

Green was another story. We had to park almost a block down the street there were so many cars. This is the 11th year for ThanksLiving and Damon and his staff really outdid themselves. Picking up the food was quick and easy.

Eating the food was a joy. They really did a great job this year. The turkey was perfect along with the potatoes and stuffing and Brussel sprouts. The best part was that we didn’t have to cook or clean anything except our forks.
