Spicy Sausage Sandwich Patties

There is something about being this close to the equator that makes all the nasties and germs come out to play, like they are airborne just waiting to make you sick. So… apologies for not having more posts to share recently, I seem to spend more days sick than healthy here. So I’m getting back on the green smoothies (minus the berries which sadly don’t exist here) and back to the gym to get healthy again. This sausage recipe is one I really like to make… or did before we ran out of gluten flour. Now all our seitan is make the old traditional way from plain flour. I keep thinking how easy and convenient it is to go to any supermarket or health shop in UK and find fast and easy ready made vegan sausages, so this recipe is for people who live in parts of the world where veganism isn’t so easy, but to show it’s never impossible. Note: If you have no idea where to find gluten flour, can’t for whatever reason order …

Vegan Jaffa Cakes and Sausages at Norwich Veggie Fayre

Last weekend I did my very first stall at Norwich Veggie Fayre, selling The Grumpy Sailor Zines to raise money for Hillside Animal Sanctuary, homemade sausage sandwiches, and vegan jaffa cakes. The whole day was a huge success and it was so fun to be part of it all. The Norwich Veggie Fayre is only in its fourth year, but its growing and getting more and more popular! Next year they are going to have to find a bigger venue. The whole of last week running up to the Fayre was dedicated to getting everything ready, I really had no idea just how long it would all take, it was crazy. After getting the Zine finally finished and sent to the printers on Tuesday I spend the next few days make 200 Vegan Lincolnshire Sausages and about 100 jaffa cakes. The sausages were something I am practiced at having to sometimes on the larger ships make 60-70 at a time. But the jaffa cakes however…. totally different story. I had made up to 12 in …

Vegan Bangers

There are loads of this style of steamed seitan sausage recipe floating around, and they really are my favourite way to make vegan bangers. For this recipe I changed the herbs and seasonings to make them reminisant of my old favourite – lincolnshire sausages. These are ideal for sausage sandwiches, added to a vegan fry up or as classic bangers and mash with a rich onion gravy. I usually double the recipe when making these and freeze a bunch, that way I always have some on hand and they can be cooked directly from frozen. I sometimes think freezing them actually makes the texture even better. I would also recommend using good quality aluminium foil to wrap the dough. I have used really thin cheap stuff before, and all that happens is you end up in a big mess of ripped foil and gluten everywhere.
