For the third installment of my walnut love, I made vegan walnut sausage. Following this recipe:
It came together super easy, just threw everything into the food processor! The hardest part was finding the nutritional yeast. I found it hanging out on the spice aisle at Whole Foods.
I decided to incorporate this into stuffed peppers for dinner. I didn’t follow a recipe, which is shocking for me and unchartered territory, but I was feeling brave!
Walnut sausage (I doubled the recipe)
1 small onion
1 package of Quinoa/Rice by Seeds of Change
Leftover brown rice (about 1/2 cup)
2 cups tomato sauce (I didn’t have tomato sauce, so I used tomato paste and ketchup mixed with water) #cookingimprov
I mixed all of the above ingredients together, which fully stuffed 6 peppers. I put a little bit of water in the baking dish and covered it with foil.
Cooking them for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven was just right.
I topped it off with a little sprinkling of nutritional yeast!
