JoAnn’s Fantastic World’s Best Vegan Gourmet BBQ Sausage


Thanks to JoAnn for this awesome YouTube BBQ Sausage recipe demo .


1 tbs unsalted veggie broth/ water
1 Red Onion, chopped fine
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
1 Red Pepper, deseeded & cut small
1 Portobello Mushroom, chopped fine
3 tbs Paprika (can use part smoked paprika)
Zest 1 Lemon
2 tbs Thyme leaves
2 Sprigs Rosemary
1 can unsalted Red Kidney Beans, drained, rinsed & pat dry ( I used a salad spinner and laid out on a towel)
1 can unsalted Cannellini Beans, , drained, rinsed & pat dry
5 Tbs Buckwheat Flour, gluten free flour or all purpose
3 tbs Crushed Walnuts or GF Breadcrumbs for nut free or combo
1/2 tsp Salt Substitute 
2 tsp Cracked Black Pepper

Salsa Verde 

Handful Fresh Parsley
Handful Fresh Chives
Handful Fresh Basil
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
3 tbs Capers
3 Cocktail Gherkins
1 tbs Unsalted Mustard
3 tbs Red Wine Vinegar

Serve with 

Charred Chicory
Lemon Zest


Sweat the onion, pepper, mushroom, garlic, herbs & spices over a medium heat.

Add the beans to a mixing bowl with the flour & walnuts.

Once the onion mix has softened add it to the mixing bowl. Using a masher, mash the mix until it just starts to come together. Don’t over mash the mix, you want some texture.

Lightly flour your hands, then make the mix into sausage shapes, JoAnn usually gets 8-9 sausages out of the mixture.

Wrap the sausages individually first in greaseproof paper, then in a sheet of foil, tightly.

Once you’ve wrapped all of the sausages, place them into a saucepan of simmering water. Allow them to cook for 20 minutes. I used the pressure cooker.

Remove the sausages from the water once cooked. When cool enough to handle, remove the wrapping. Recycle the foil.

For the salsa verde, finally chop the herbs with the garlic, gherkins & capers. Once fine add the mix to a bowl & stir in the no salt added mustard & vinegar. Season to taste.

BBQ or grill the sausages for 4-5 minutes & serve with the salsa.

JoAnn lightly grills some chicory to serve with the sausages.
