Sausage with Sauerkraut, Onions, and Rye

I had been craving sauerkraut and recently came across some Tofurkey sausages on sale so voila - this combination happened! Field Roast also makes some delicious sausages, and if you are feeling really adventurous- you should try your hand at making your own! This meal requires very little attention and is very hearty and delicious. It's perfect for a busy day and makes for great leftovers.

1 large yellow onion (sliced thinly)
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 jar sauerkraut (organic, and drained)
2-4 vegan sausages (sliced thickly)
plenty of whole peppercorns

rye bread (homemade or otherwise)
brown mustard

Heat up the oil in a cast iron frying pan (if you have one). Add the onion and saute until soft. Next add the sausages and peppercorns. Once your sausages begin to darken, add the sauerkraut. Saute for 5-10 minutes, tasting and adjusting as necessary. You may need to add more peppercorns or a pinch of brown sugar. Serve with toasted rye bread and a thick spread of your favorite mustard!

  2. I found this online earlier today as I was looking for a way to cook some Tofurky sausage and sauerkraut I had on hand-this looked perfect! I pulled out my cast iron pan and made it exactly as written-it was perfect! Hearty and delicious! I put a little bit of whole grain dijon mustard on the side and it was a nice touch as well. Thank you for posting this, it will be something I will make again!
