Good Morning, Sunday Seitan Hash!

Don’t you love Sundays?

The best feeling on coming home from the Strip District loaded down with groceries is knowing that for at least a week straight, I’m going to have nearly everything I need to make some really decent breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Sunday mornings are particularly pleasant, as I can wake up when I want and leisurely go about fixing a big brunch. And more often that not, by the time I get out of bed, my mind is already fixated on exactly what it is that I want to make.

This Sunday morning, I was focused on a lentil-based faux sausage. But after a look on the internet and through a few of my vegan cookbooks, I couldn’t find a decent base to start from, so I shelved the idea as a project to work on this week, and opted instead to work off of a tasty vegan seitan sausage recipe from Sarah Kramer’s La Dolce Vegan (top notch in offering good starter recipes), and to accompany my planned hash, I added a spinach salad with an adapted dressing recipe from The Garden of Vegan.

Simple Seitan Sausage

Ingredients
Seitan
– 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
– 1/2 cup water
– 2 tsp sage
– 1 tsp cayenne pepper
– 1 tsp turmeric

– In a mixing bowl, combine vital wheat gluten and spices. Stir in water, then knead dough for about five minutes. Cut seitan into bite-size chunks and set aside.

Ingredients
Sausage Stock
– 2 cups water
– 2 tbsp soy sauce
– 1 1/2 tsp sugar
– 1 tsp sage
– 1 tsp onion salt
– 1 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp black pepper
– 1/2 tsp basil
– 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
– 1 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
– Fennel (optional)

Bring all ingredients to a boil, then add gluten chunks. Reduce the heat and cover with a lid, simmering for 50 – 60 minutes. Stir about every 10 minutes, until stock has mostly reduced.

Sunday Seitan Sausage Hash

Ingredients
– Seitan sausage
– 2 tbsp olive oil
– 1 green bell pepper, chopped
– 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
– 1 sweet potato, diced
– 2 tsp black pepper
– 2 tsp Cajun seasoning
– 1 tsp onion salt

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Add the 2 tbsp olive oil to an 8×8 casserole dish. Add the vegetables and seitan, then the spices, and toss until everything is evenly coated. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

  1. I love weekend breakfasts! Mostly because Mister makes them. It’s nice to have a day off from cooking every once in a while. But also because they’re relaxed, comforting and satisfying. This dish looks like it meets all three of these. I just may have to give up a day of to make it.

    Thanks for sharing this with Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays.
