Okara Italian Sausage – vegan, plantbased

  • 1

Do you make soymilk at home, too? And you do not know what you should do with the leftover Okara (soy residue in the nut bag). I have a suitable recipe for you here. An Italian sausage, a famous sausage in the states. Spices are the secret ingredients for the taste.

You can BBQ, frying or baking the sausage. Try it out. You can eat it in a bun or making some balls and eating with pasta and marinara sauce. It is your choice how you want to eat it. You can make a big batch and freeze them until you use them.

Do you make the sausages. Then tag me on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest @veeatcookbake. I am looking forward to here from you.

    I just love it when the good old traditional recipes get re-created with a little twist! I never tried making soya milk at home but I know what to do with the leftovers now! Thank you for a great recipe.

      I love veganize traditional recipes. I think the spices are the key. 🙂

    This is such a creative recipe. I never thought about making something with the left over soy from making milk. Very clever.


    1. veeatcookbake

      Thanks Jen. Win win for making the soy milk. It makes it still cheaper. 🙂

  4. Anna

    I think my boyfriend is going to love making these sausages! He hasn’t found any in stores that he likes.
