Recipe + VIDEO: Meatless Bratwurst Sausage

Weisswurst, blutwurst, bockwurst, bregenwurst, knackwurst, gelbwurst, there are a million and one types of sausage and those are just from Germany! In fact, there are over 50 different varieties of Bratwurst alone and after today, the raw rost- bratwurst will make number 51.

Mock meat is no laughing matter. The taste and texture can be a tough sell for seasoned meat lovers.  These raw vegan sausage links are layered with a lotta complex flavors to get that simple taste.  Plus the condiments of sauerkraut and mustard are going directly in for full on flavor.

Ok so….this super simple recipe needs one complex item. If you’re real about raw, a dehydrator is a must. If you don’t have one, you can use your oven on its lowest setting for similar results. Need a dehydrator? Find it here.
