Vegan lentil "sausage" recipe

Made the lentils again yesterday and wrote down the ingredient amounts. The spice mix is for 2 cups of cooked lentils. 

1 clove garlic, minced. 
Saute this in a little water for 30 seconds. Add lentils to pan and stir. Add spice mix and heat through.

 Italian spice mix:

1/2 tsp fennel seed
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp italian seasoning
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp tomato powder (ground sun dried tomatoes)
pinch smoked paprika
pinch of ground fennel powder (or more to taste) 

And since this is an unprocessed whole food delicious recipe - I sent it in to the new blog party here: Healthy Vegan Fridays
Head on over and see what else is cookin'!

      I hope you enjoy it. I've been following you and the girls for years. They always make me smile. I miss my girl so much I named my bakery after her :)

  3. Thanks for the idea! I was looking for a lentil sausage alternative, and so I used your recipe as a guideline. I was amazed how sausage-like it really was! If you're interested, here's the lentil "coney dog" I made using your recipe:

    Thanks again for the great recipe! :)
