The Best Vegan Sausage Ever!

Field Roast Sausage Links
I searched for a long time for a meatless sausage replacement and really did not like most of the types I tried. Perhaps it is because I was never a big fan of sausage to begin with, despite my father being a sausage maker. Then I found Smoked Apple Sage Sausage Links from Field Roast. They are simply amazing. And, they are not only vegan, but soy free. The ingredients are made with wheat gluten, vegetables and spices. My meat eating friends love them, they are delicious alone, in a roll, sliced and added to pasta dishes.

I have tried the other two flavors, Italian and Mexican Chipotle, but the Apple Sage is still my favorite. Apparently other people agree, as that flavor is typically the first to sell out at Whole Foods. They aren't cheap, but filling and totally worth the price.  According to Field Roast's website, Whole Foods in Swampscott is the only place you can purchase them on the North Shore.

To prepare the sausage, I cook them in a frying pan with light safflower or canola oil. Sometimes I leave them whole, but if I'm in a hurry, I butterfly them so the center cooks faster. One of my friends served them sliced in rounds as appetizers at a party and they were gone in minutes.
