Oats & Rice Sausage

A simple vegan sausage recipe made from oats and rice. Some people had problems finding the frozen speckled butter beans in the Bean Sausage recipe I published back in 2008. I decided to make a sausage recipe without the beans and create a sausage with a chewier texture. GO TO RECIPE >

    I have been looks for a grain based “sausage” to make, so thank you for the recipe. The pic looks great!

  • Teresa

    These look great. Have yet to try any of your recipes but I will. Nice that many of your recipes are soy free and economical!

    I am making these for breakfast Monday morning. Thank you so much for sharing.

    I made these today and are great! Question though, what kind of molasses did you use? I only got 4 out of it since I didn’t have a biscuit cutter and had to use a drinking glass but they are awesome! Thanks! I started with the 1T of oil and then just kept added a bit of water as I cooked them. do you think they can be done without the oil?

  • My Vegan Cookbook

    The molasses was “Grandma’s Brand”. You probably could leave out the oil.

    This looks amazing… I am afraid there is no egg substitute here where I live (in Demark)… any ideas on what else I could use?? THANKS!

  • Nancy

    I made these again today and used 2 T ground flaxseed with 6 T warm water, left out the other egg subsitute and left out the oil. I pan fried them in a few T of water for about 3 minutes each side in a nonstick pan and they came out good!

    I really liked these. Then I made variation batches and the most stripped down one I like best! All it contains is the rice, oats, nut.yeast, sage, thyme, black pepper and instead of the soy sauce I used about 1/2 Tbs of miso (less sodium and more flavor) Excellent to start with, I just liked my version even better. Different taste buds…

    These were great!!!!

    I made these tonight, while they didn’t make 7 (I got 4 medium sized ones) they were awesome!! I will definitely make again. :)

  • Valeria

    These are so good! My teenage son ate 3 of them and that is saying a lot! They are perfect and I’ll never buy that yucky soy sausage from the grocery store again. You are truly gifted in the kitchen!

    After impatiently throwing together different things for my own creation, I find your website with such detailed, creative, patient creation and I am truly amazed at your ability to recreate in vegan. I love the use of oats,(with my Scottish ancestory and cholesterol caution) I used barley previously and never thought to use oats; both give a chewy texture.

    I was wondering if you ever considered venturing into the dals of India, they are so high in proteins: Chana, Moong, Urad, Tur, Kala, Masoor, etc. As a runner I need a lot of protein and like to use these pulses also. You could probably do some amazing recipes with these. A chef most excellent.

    is the yeast necessary?
    I would love to try these but don’t have any special kind of yeast, just regular yeast.

    You could just leave it out, shouldn’t be a problem. Nutritional yeast has kind of a cheezy flavor to it.

    I just made these, and they taste GREAT.
    I didn’t have any molasses, so I just used sugar, and I used ground flax seed as my egg replacer, and these worked fine.
    I also made more than 7 patties, since I just formed little balls with the dough & flattened them by hand — mine came out thinner & crispier (& probably smaller) than the photo, but they were still tasty!

    Thanks for a great recipe!

    My 11 year daughter had no idea that these weren’t ‘real’ breakfast sausages!

    they’re delicious! I used ground flax as egg sub and ‘steam’ sauteed’ them as previously suggested (with water)

    I also rolled them into balls and patted them out into little cakes, you have to moisten your hands a bit with water when doing it this way but they turn out nicely.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Very yummy. Both my picky husband and my picky 20 month old liked them. I will definitely be making them again. Do these freeze well? I’d love to make a big batch and then defrost them in the morning as needed!

  • http://www.myvegancookbook.com/ My Vegan Cookbook

    Iyabo, yes you can freeze them, I have and it works.

  • AJ

    I made these and they are awesome!!! My kids loved them especially with the half whole wheat biscuits and jam!!! I baked mine and they turned out at just the right texture….cant wait to try the bean sausage patties because I found the speckled beans..yay me!

  • Jenny

    This is DELICIOUS!! Thanks for sharing!!

  • ana

    Wow! I must say these are sooooo gooood! Much better than the stuff at the grocery store. I have 3 boys and my 2 youngest had them for breakfast this morning and asked for seconds. Thank you for these recipes! I will definately be using these recipes!!!

  • AmyB

    Well done, sir. We make them exactly as recommended (except we double the batch). These are now part of our regular rotation (though I eat them on biscuits with mustard!) alongside greens and sweet potatoes… One of my favorite dinners! Thank you!!!

  • Katie Keener

    Wow! ! Delicious!!! Accidentally forgot the flour and they were still perfect. Next time I’m going to double or triple and freeze after browning. So cheap too!!! Thanks for my new “sausage”
