This is a dish a lot of vegetarians will be familiar with as the veggie alternative to a regular meat roast. I recently saw it featured with pork sausages in a foodie mag, and decided to post up my own version of this warm, healthy standby. You can of course use the herb of your choice as garnish, I just happened to have some sweet little leaves growing on my basil plant. Thyme and Sage would of fit for Thanksgiving; or for a flavoursome dinner party entree, try a delicious little leaf called Lovage that I only found in Waitrose the other day (more on that one later).

Vegetarian Sausage Baguette with Salad
August 23, 2009

These are Quorn veggie sausages with shallots, caramalised in a little butter and sugar for about 10 minutes on a low hob. Veg saussies tend to go quite hard, so I watch mine and constantly rotate them throughout cooking. I also like to burn my shallots/onions…which is not good for me at all in terms of carcinogens, but oooh so tasty!

The salad is made up of romaine lettuce, radishes, plum tomatoes, and buffalo mozzarella. The light dressing is made to taste with olive oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, fresh lemon juice, and chopped thyme leaves. I add the ingredients until just right in one of the millions of water bottles stored in our flat – ready to use for the next few lunches.

I tend to watch an episode or two of good telly during my main meal. I’ve been getting wrapped up in a Japanese dorama Hagetaka…but today I must admit to opting for comfort over financial drama and watching an episode of As Time Goes By.
