Veggie sausage and green pepper stir-fry

ate.2013.07.11.l.jpg
This is basically my regular sausage and green pepper stir-fry made with vegetarian soy sausage. It's still delicious, and a bit healthier. I like this just as much as the one with real sausage and I think I'm going to make it this way from now on!

oil (canola, olive, peanut, whatever you like)
1 green pepper, cut into strips
3 veggie sausage links, diced
granulated garlic
cayenne pepper
soy sauce

Here's the cut green pepper.

Add oil to a sauté pan (I use canola, but pretty much any oil is fine) over medium heat.

Cook the sliced green peppers for a few minutes.

I used 3 of the the MorningStar Farms breakfast sausage links.

Add the seasoning.

Serve with rice. I usually have pre-cooked white sushi rice in the refrigerator. Put a serving on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 40 seconds.

I used to make this with the veggie patties, but the veggie links work better, I think.

This dish is vegetarian. The MorningStar Farms breakfast links contain egg and milk products, so it's not vegan, but there might be a vegan alternative product you could use instead.

: I've made it this way several times and still love it this way. You can get by with 2 sausage links, too.
