Blah. I’m still sick. I’ve been pumped full of medicine and hot tea since Friday. I’ve had very little energy, not even enough to stay up until midnight to celebrate New Year’s. But I did manage to muster up some energy this afternoon to take a picture of my sausage spice blend.
I find that the Gimme Lean ground “sausage” is a little too bland for me. It just needs a little more spice. So why not add to it?
Sausage Spice Blend
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons fennel seeds
2 teaspoons ground sage
1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon marjoram
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 tablespoon brown sugar
In a small mixing bowl, incorporate all the spices and herbs together and mix thoroughly.
Use 1 teaspoon per 1 pound of vegan sausage, ground pork, or ground turkey.
Store in an air-tight container.
