Perfect recipe for vegetarian sausages (need a silicone sausage mold)


  • 2 cans young jackfruit, drained and rinsed
  • 4 cups of water (and 1/2 for step 3)
  • ½ cup textured soy protein, dry measure
  • 1 cup cooked or canned chickpeas, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp deodorized coconut oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour
  • ¼ cup chickpea flour
  • ¼ cup quinoa flour
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • ¼ cup vegan, gluten-free Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 tsp sea salt
  • 1½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp fennel seeds, crushed 
  • ½ tsp black peppercorns, freshly ground
  • ½ tsp crushed chili pepper
  • ½ tsp oregano, dried or fresh


  1. Rinse the jackfruit well, drain and transfer to a medium sized saucepan, add 4 cups of water and boil on medium-high for 25 minutes or until tender.
  2. In a medium skillet, add olive oil and sauté onions, garlic and mushrooms for 5 minutes or until tender.
  3. In a small bowl, add dry texturized soy protein and pour in 1/2 cup of boiling water. Stir until fully submerged and let sit 5-10 minutes.
  4. In a high-speed food processor, transfer cooked jackfruit pieces and pulse until well shredded.
  5. Transfer jackfruit to a large bowl and add the sautéed onions, garlic, mushrooms with texturized soy protein and mix well.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine tapioca flour, chickpea flour, quinoa flour and nutritional yeast and add to jackfruit texturized soy protein mixture. Mix well.
  7. Using silicone sausage molds, form the sausages by hand before pressing mixture into the mold. 
  8. In a stovetop basket steamer or electric steamer, steam sausages in molds or plastic wrap 35 to 45 minutes depending on thickness. Once steamed, refrigerate several hours so that they harden slightly.
  9. When ready to serve, heat remaining 3 Tbsp of olive oil in a medium to large skillet and cook sausages over medium heat until evenly browned.
