Vegan Sausage and Peppers
We’d made red beans and rice a couple of weeks ago, so I had half a package of Field Roast sausages in the fridge. It was a beautiful weekend here, so we wanted to enjoy the day and not spend too much time in the kitchen, so I decided to make a quick batch of sausage and peppers. This is seriously one of the easiest things to do – just slice up some bell peppers (we use red and green), about half of a large yellow onion, and a couple of links of vegan sausage and mince a few cloves of garlic. Once everything is sliced and minced, all I do is put about 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a hot skillet and add the onion, sauté it for a few minutes, then add the peppers. After the peppers get a little bit softened, I add the sausage and let it brown, then add the garlic for the last couple of minutes of cooking. I like to serve it over brown rice. We also had a nice side salad to go with it. I normally make my own dressings, but I was feeling lazy, so we just used olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
