The recipes on this blog are designed to encourage those who want to try a plant based diet, so I thought it was a good idea to give alternatives to food that you may miss while staying away from meat. If you miss your traditional fry up, this is a good vegan alternative. The sausages can be made in large batches and frozen. You can flavour them any way you like. These are traditional smoked paprika flavour. Served with lots of toast and tea this is a very satisfying meal.
Chick Pea Flour 200g
Tomato Paste 1/2 tube
Veg Stock or Water
Mustard Powder 1 tbl sp
Garlic Powder 1 tblsp
Smoked Paprika 1 tblsp
Tin Mixed Beans
Jar sun dried Tomatoes
Put dry ingredients in a bowl and mix. Add 1 finely diced onion to the mix. Drain tin of beans of your choice and crush half of the contents and add this to the sausage mix.
The mix should be on the wet side.
Take a piece of tinfoil (200mm x 100mm approx) put about 30g of sausage mix on and roll into a cigar shape. Seal the ends like a bow.
The mix should yield about 20 sausages. Place them in a steamer for 40 to 45 mins.
They can be fried straight from the steamer.
Grate Potatoes and drain as much liquid as you can from them by squeezing with your hands. Add a diced onion and some herbs of your choice, salt and pepper.
Place small handfuls of mix on a preheated pan with sunflower oil. About 5 should fit in a standard pan.
Fry for 4 mins then press flat with a spatula. Fry for a further 4 mins then turn and give them 5 more mins.
Saute an Onion until sweet and caramelized.
Drain the oil from a jar of Sun dried Tomatoes. Put in a blender with 2 fresh Tomatoes and the sauted onion. Blitz until smooth.
Empty can of mixed beans into a saucepan. Add a few tablespoons of the Tomato. Enough to cover the beans. Heat and serve with rest of the breakfast.
Make this just before you are going to serve breakfast.
With your fingers, crush a block of Tofu into a bowl. In another bowl mix 100g of Chickpea flour with 2 teaspoons of Mustard Powder, Black Salt, and Pepper. Ad 400ml of Soya Milk to make a paste.
Put Tofu and Chick Pea Paste mix into a frying pan and stir to make a scramble. Don't cook for too long, just enough to get heat through the mix.
Chick Pea Fritata
In another bowl mix 100g of Chickpea flour with 2 teaspoons of Mustard Powder, Black Salt, and Pepper. Ad 400ml of Soya Milk to make a paste.
Fry some mushrooms and onions, Peppers or Courgette or any veg you like.
Add the chickpea paste and mix with veg. Push the mix to form a circular 'omelette' in the middle of the pan. Grate some vegan cheese and bread crumbs over the top and finish under a hot grill.
