Homemade veggie sausages

I find that there can never be enough veggie sausage experiments, and therefore today's recipe is again for vegetarian sausages.

I've been cooking with some Finnish protein products again. This time with Härkis, the one made from broad beans. It's really versatile, but this time I wanted to make some homemade veggie sausages from it. This mix stuck very firmly together, probably better than any of my previous veggie sausage attempts. I think that you can substitute this product with some soya or wheat gluten products.

Have a look at my recipe here!

Homemade veggie sausages


250 g Härkis (protein product made from broad beans)
200 g potatoes
1 onion
2 black garlic cloves
1 tsp salt
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp vegetable stock powder
2 tbsp tomato purée
1 egg
Vegetable oil for frying


Peel and boil the potatoes and mash them.

Chop the onion and garlic finely and cook them in oil until soft.

Mix all ingredients together and shape sausages from the mix.

Fry the sausages in a pan until they have a crispy outside layer.

Serve with for example potato mash and cabbage mix on the side like I did.

  1. I agree one can keep experimenting with veggie sausage recipes and these look really good, I am really curious about Härkis (protein product made from broad beans) as I don't believe I have seen its equivalent in the UK. I am guessing it a gluten free product unlike vital wheat gluten used to make seitan sausages.

  2. I confess I love experimenting with burgers but find sausages just too fussy (that shaping is fiddly) - though I love it when I get inspired. I think this mix of braodbeans and potatoes sounds interesting.


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
