I had full intentions to make vegan sausage using whole, canned black beans; however, the distractions of a busy super market got the best of me, and I grabbed canned refried black beans. I've outlined how I made the best out of my purchase. I have to say…they turned out pretty darn good!
Free of gluten, dairy, soy, and animal products.
1 Can refried black beans
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup sesame seeds
Onion powder, garlic powder, sage, smoked paprika, cracked red pepper, salt and pepper to taste (because I hate following recipes)
About 1 tbsp fennel seeds (less if you prefer, but I really like fennel, this is what gives sausage the taste of sausage)
Spray skillet with cooking spray and heat to medium. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and form small patties. Cook on medium until the top is dark brown or slightly charred. Makes about 15-20 small patties.
