Easy Italian Sausage, Peppers + Onion Skillet (Vegan)
Serves: 4
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pack of vegan Italian sausage (I used Beyond Meat)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 mixed peppers, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of dreied mixed italian herbs,
  • 1 teaspoon chilli spice (optional, to your taste)
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Fresh basil or parsley for garnish, chopped (optional)
  • 250ml cup of vegan chicken stock OR a tablespoon of vegan chicken stock dissolved in 250ml a cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon of white spirit vinegar / apple cider vinegar
  1. Stirfry your vegan sausage (sliced or whole, as per your preference) along with one sliced onion in some olive oil.
  2. Mince a clove of garlic and saute till golden in olive oil at a low heat.
  3. Sautee peppers, sliced into strips, along with another sliced onion. NOTE: If you are using beyond meat Italian sausages, they would have released quite a bit of liquid, making for a tasty light sauce. If you are using regular soy sausages, or an alternative such as beans or mushrooms, you might wish to add a 250ml cup of vegan chicken stock or a tablespoon of powdered vegan chicken stock dissolved in 250ml a cup of water, along with a tablespoon of tomato paste and a tablespoon of white spirit vinegar / apple cider vinegar to the skillet now, to create your own light sauce.)
  4. Sprinkle a teaspoon of mixed italian herbs, or a teaspoon containing a combination of dried thyme, sweet basil and oregano over the skillet. If you'd like some extra spice, add a pinch of chilli, adjusting for your preferred heat.
  5. When peppers are soft, after approx 15 minutes, return the set-aside sausage and onions to the skillet. Mix well, and allow to warm through.
  6. Season with salt, black pepper, and garnish with freshly chopped, flat Italian parsley or fresh basil.
  7. Serve with rice, herbed mash, polenta or over a baked potato, and ENJOY!
