Hot Faux Sausage!

Our grill hasn't gotten much use this summer, it's either been too rainy or just too damn hot! But on Sunday evening, John braved the sweltering heat and lit up the coals. We grilled some Field Roast Italian Sausage, a grain meat that also has eggplant, red bell pepper, and plenty of fennel seed to spice it up! Here they are with their beautiful grill marks....




At first I just put these on a whole wheat hot dog bun with some whole grain mustard, but once we took our first few bites, John made an excellent addition. I had leftover red wine tomato sauce from the past week that perfectly complimented the Italian flavors, plus we got rid of some leftovers (I'm trying to get better about that)! Sorry no picture of the finished product, I ate it too fast. On the side, I also utilized other leftover veggies (red pepper, cucumber) to make the Quinoa Spring Salad from Vive Le Vegan. Added some edamame as well, a delicious, refreshing salad. In fact I just finished up the rest for lunch today.

Mmmm. That all looks so delicious. I just started eating quinoa a few months ago and I love how fast it is to cook and how filling and yummy it is. I picked up some Tofurky Italian sausages and Yves veggie dogs for a family barbeque this coming weekend that I'm looking forward to chowing down on.
