Ingredients

  • 4 Vegan Italian Sausages
  • 1 large yellow onion sliced lengthwise
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced lengthwise
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 15 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 whole wheat sandwich rolls

Instructions

  • Grill the vegan sausages in a dry, nonstick skillet. Then remove them from the pan and set them aside.
  • In the same nonstick skillet, sauté the onion and bell pepper until they are soft. I like to let them caramelize a bit for added flavor. Use a small amount of water as necessary to deglaze the pan.
  • Add the garlic and sauté for about 2 more minutes.
  • Add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and the seasonings. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes. Add the sausages to the pan. You can leave them whole, or slice them.
  • When the sausages are hot, fill each sandwich rolls with one sausages and pepper filling. If desired, you can add a slice of vegan cheese, or sprinkle the sandwich filling with nutritional yeast.
