We used to keep a few packs of the very versatile veggie sausage (Quorn or similar) in the freezer.  As they are not readily available abroad, we make our own.  This is a nutritious, tasty recipe which can be frozen and importantly withstand the heat of the BBQ without crumbling.  To use this adaptable recipe you will need the following:


1/2 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic
3/4 cup cooked pinto beans, or chickpeas well-drained
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon white or black pepper
1/4 teaspoon mace
1/8 teaspoon smoked salt (optional)
1 cup wheat gluten or flour (we use maize flour but any will do)
1/3 cup oats
2 tablespoons of Marmite or nutritional yeast
1 1/4 tablespoon sesame seeds (or flax)

Note: The last batch I made did not have mace and the marmite was swapped to Vegemite, still tastes great.  This is a really versatile recipe which you can swap and change and the end result still ends up yummy!


Put the onion and garlic into a food processor and chop finely. Heat a frying pan, add the onion and garlic from the processor and cook until the onion is softened.


Put the cooked onion and garlic mix back into the food processor.
Add all of the the rest of the ingredients to the onion and garlic in the food processor.


Blend. Add water if too thick or oats/flour to thicken if needed, blend until a dough is formed.

Place the mixture in the fridge to roll later or sprinkle some flour onto the work surface if you want to get on with it. Place a large spoon full of the mixture onto the flour and roll/ mould into your favourite sausage shape. Thick, thin, short, long… it’s up to you.


Fry, BBQ or grill. Or store in a sealed container in the fridge or freezer. Add mustard and sauces and Enjoy.

  1. Never thought to make our own.. But judging by how much we spend on pre bought and how tasty these sound, we definitely have to make these!! Great post! 👌🏼

  2. Definitely going to try this one. My kids are sausage made, but not so keen on the quorn ones (which I love). I can make this out of store cupboard staples – WIN! #BloggerClubUK

  3. Looks really delicious on the roll. I haven’t tried making homemade sausages before, but this one gives me a rough idea how. Thanks for sharing your recipe. #BloggerClubUK

  4. These look great! I’m going to give them a try. I was disappointed to find out that a lot of the veggie fast food we have in our freezer has sugar in so these will be a great substitute. #DreamTeam

  5. These look fab, though I have to admit to looking at that long list of ingredients and thinking.. ohhhh I don’t think I could do that. They do look very tasty though. Thank you for sharing with the #DreamTeam

    1. Oh wow. I make my own veggie burgers but have never attempted sausages. I always worry that they will just fall apart, and there are several brands on the market that I really like so I usually buy them. These look worth a try though! #foodiefriday

  6. Oh wow, these look amazing! I have never thought about making my own, I think I have everything to make them so I will be giving it a go. I much prefer veggie sausages even though I have started to eat meat the last few years. #foodiefriday

  7. phwoar – these sound amazing! I’m not vegetarian so have never comtemplated what even goes into veggie sausages so I had no idea the main bulk was chick peas and oats (both which i love) You’ve converted me – this is a recipe keeper! #fortheloveofBLOG

  8. Mmmmmmmmmmm these sound so good and something I could get the girls to help me with definitely one I’ll be giving a go

  9. I love this recipe. As a lifelong vegetarian I too have used my fair share of Quorn but am always happier making a home cooked version from scratch I will be trying these soon!

    Thank you for linking too #foodiefriday

    1. Sorry I’ve only just noticed your comment! A life long veggie, wow! I’ve not eaten meat for more than half my life. There simply aren’t any nice veggie options here in Spain so we have to make our own and they really are worth it, hope you enjoy them too!
