Crash Test Vegetarian

Vegan to Omnivore outreach program


on May 1, 2011

I saw this post on the Post Punk Kitchen Forum and just HAD to post it.  Clearly, this is for not-sausages not actual meat sausages.  And to be honest, I will probably just steal the spices for beans and other things, but I had to keep it just the same and share it.


1 tsp garlic powder [tester recommendation: use sauteed fresh garlic]
1 tsp onion powder [tester recommendation: use sauteed shallots]
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne [or more to taste]
1/8 teaspoon chili powder [or more to taste]

1/4 teaspoon allspice *
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme*
1 tablespoon paprika [tester recommendation: reduce paprika to 1-2 tsp]
1/4 teaspoon ground bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon sage *
1 tsp liquid smoke

*if you want a clearer taste with fewer spices, bump up the dried thyme to 1 tsp and leave out the mace, allspice, and sage

1/2 tsp mace
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp rubbed sage
1/2 tsp nutmeg
dry toasted bread crumbs
