A simple vegan sausage recipe made from oats and rice.

Some people had problems finding the frozen speckled butter beans in the Bean Sausage recipe I published back in 2008. I decided to make a sausage recipe without the beans and create a sausage with a chewier texture.

Nutritional Facts
Servings 7Serving Size 1 Patty




  • 1 Cup Cooked Brown Rice
  • 3/4 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 2 Tablespoons Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Egg Replacer
  • 1 Tablespoon Molasses
  • 2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes (or more if desired)
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoons Ground Sage
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Rosemary
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Thyme


In a food processor, first pulse oats and then add the brown rice and pulse about 5 times. Add the rest of ingredients into the food processor, saving out 1 tablespoon of the oil, for cooking the sausage. Then pulse 5 more times to mix the ingredients together.

Flour hands and then pour out mixture onto a floured board. Flatten out mixture to about 1/2 inch and cut out patties with a biscuit cutter. Heat skillet and turn heat down to medium to low.

Coat skillet with oil and place patties. Cover and cook until lightly brown on both sides. Cook each side about 3 minutes. If necessary add 1/2 tablespoon of water to skillet to prevent sticking and burning.Let stand about 10 minutes. Alternatively you can cook them in the oven on 400 degrees on a cookie sheet, covered in foil.

Mix the extra cooking oil into the patties before shaping. Cook for 5 minutes, turn and cook 5 more minutes.
