Make Your Own Vegan Sausages

Written by McDonald, T.  |  Date 1st of November 2021  

I got this recipe from The Vegan Society magazine called The Vegan.  If you are someone that does not like the texture of meat, this could be for you.  I made some alterations to suit my needs.  

Serves 8


  • 1 small white onion, roughly chopped
  • 4 finely chopped cloves of garlic 
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp yeast extract
  • 120 g  mushrooms, chopped
  • 400 g can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 50 g oats
  • 0.25 cup of plain flour
  • 2 tsp fresh sage
  • 3 apple slices, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast with B12
  • 1.5 tsp of salt


  • Blender
  • Spatula
  • Scraper  
  • Frying pan


Step 1

  1. Add all the ingredients with the exception of 2 tbsp of oil to a bowl and mix.
  2. Put a little at a time of the mixture into the blender.
  3. Pulse until you have a smooth, meaty mixture. 
  4. Shape the mixture into 8 sausages with a little flour if needed.

Step 2

  1. Add  the oil to a frying pan over a medium heat and cook the sausages for 10 minutes, turning regularly to cook evenly.


Things didn't turn out the way i hoped and i had to make alterations to fix the problem. 

First, the ingredients wouldn't blend together.  I solved this by removing everything from the blender and spooning in smaller amounts, which solved the problem.  

Putting everything in the blender was not the best idea

Second, I found the mixture was far to runny and i had to add another cup of plain flour and 0.5 a cup of oats. After mixing this all together in a bowl, which was hard work, i was able to shape the mixture into sausages and burger shapes.   

I used a dough scraper cut the meat and then shaped it with some flour to stop it from sticking to the board.

I made 7 sausages and 1 burger.

The burger cooked and in a bread roll

I put some in the fridge and some in the freezer to see how well they froze.  They seemed to freeze OK
