Since if tried them the first time, I love these vegan sausages. They are easy to make and come out so delicious. They are perfect for a little BBQ – and with all the other veggies combined it´s the most awesome plate! Want to make your friends jealous at the next BBQ? Here´s how:
First, you need to soak your beans overnight. You can also used canned ones, but I prefer the normal ones as they are even healthier. Cook the beans until they get soft. Poke into them with a fork to test the texture. You want them to be really soft in the end in order to mash them. Once they are cooked, put them into your blender or food processor. If you don´t have either of them, mashing them by hand with a fork is also an option. Either way, blend/mash the beans until they form a nice and even mixture. Then add salt, pepper, paprika powder and a little bit of soy sauce to it. Mix that all together and add in your flour. We just need the flour to give the mixture a bit of a ticker texture, so that we can form sausages out of it. Add enough flour that the mixture forms a dough not sticky anymore. Next we need to cut up some parchment paper into little quarters to form the sausages. Put a bit of your dough onto the paper, roll it up so that it looks like sausage and put aluminum foil around it to get hold of this form. Do this with all your dough until there is nothing left anymore. Then you can pop your sausages into the oven and bake them at 200°C for about 30 minutes.
For the grill plate, we are going to start out with our fries. Cut up 4 big potatoes into stipes. I usually do that by cutting them in half, then cutting that half again vertically. Then I´m cutting my fries into long stripes. After you chopped them, lay them out on parchment paper and sprinkle your spices on top. I usually use salt, paper and BBQ spice. I would really recommend the BBQ spice as it adds a really awesome flavor to the potatoes. Then pop them into the oven at 200°C and also bake them for about 30 minutes.
Then we can already chop up our zucchini and paprika. Chop the zucchini into thin stripes, the paprika can be a bit larger. Then add some oil or vegan butter to a pan and roast them on each side. Before you flip them, add your spices. After both sides are roasted, transfer them onto a separate plate. Repeat the process until there you have no veggies left anymore.
Last but not least we will chop up our avocado to go with the plate. I chopped it into stripes and topped it with a bit of salt and some hemp seeds.
And now we are ready to assemble! Put your vegan sausage out of the aluminum foil and assemble your veggies around. I topped my plate with some roasted cashew nuts for some extra crunch and some vegan mayonnaise to go with my fries.
