Meatless Monday: Curry Stir Fry w/ Tasty Vegan Sausage

Gourmet meals are nice, but sometimes you just need to get something on the table fast.  Two prepared staples I always have on hand for quick vegetarian dinners are Seeds of Change simmer sauces and artisan Field Roast vegan sausages.

Seeds of Change sauces are Indian-style curries that are made with nutritious, organic ingredients.  It’s fairly hard to find sauces that don’t have hidden syrups, sugars or unhealthy oils at the grocery store, so the flavorful Seeds of Change mild Korma (with coconut and ginger) and spicy Jalfrezi (with medium-hot bell pepper) sauces are my favorite to cook with and instantly transform any rice dish.

Most imitation meats are actually very bad for you – they contain soy protein isolate, which is highly processed and can have toxic byproducts – but the grain “meat” by Field Roast is both healthy and delicious.  Made primarily from seitan (the protein portion of wheat), Field Roast sausages are great by themselves or in dishes like pasta, pizza or rice bowls.  The two flavors I purchase frequently are the Apple Sage and Chipotle Mexican. Make sure to keep them in the fridge until you are ready to cut them, though, as they do break apart easily.

My Meatless Monday recipe below incorporates both of these items for a simple and satisfying meal.  Bon appétit!
