Vegan Tempeh Sausage

Tempeh Sausage

What should I make for brunch? A common question on a Sunday morning. I suggest Tempeh Sausage,  Breakfast Potatoes, Scrambled Tofu and Waffles. Ohh yeah baby, that’s a brunch if I ever heard one.

I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much lately, I have stated a new job and I’m still figuring out my schedule. My awesome husband has been doing a lot of cooking and our slow cooker is getting a work out. My husband also makes me breakfast on Saturday mornings so it is ready when I get back from my workout. Last Saturday it was everything I listed above except for waffles. It was awesome. I had to make the tempeh sausage again this weekend because it is so tasty.

I recommend eating the sausage by itself, or putting it on breakfast sandwiches.

This weekend I used a local tempeh which is much softer than the Lightlife brand I normally use. I much prefer the texture and taste when I use Lightlife in this recipe. If you are using a softer tempeh maybe boil it for less time.

Happy brunching!

  1. As one of my readers just commented I did not specify that the Worcestershire should be vegan! I’m so sorry. Most Worcestershire sauce has Anchovies in it, there are some that you can find at a well stocked grocery store or health food store that are vegan. They are marked as such on the label. Thank you Stephanie for pointing this out!!!!
