A meatless meat sauce using a plant-based italian sausage and a simple marinara? It’s not something I’d think would be amazing. But boy was I surprised!
I fried up a few links of field roast Italian sausage, and ground it down while it cooked with my spoon. Then I thought. I wonder how this would come together as a “meat” sauce?
Wether you use a can of your favorite store bough marinara, or a quick 30 minute marinara this tastes absolutely amazing! I couldn’t even tell what I was eating was 100% plant-based
And I’ll be honest, plant-based “meats” aren’t my go-to. But my wife sometimes just can’t stomach meat. So this is something I have to throw into rotation from time to time to make everyone happy.
I was really pleased with how this meatless meat sauce came out!
I’m including a from scratch marinara recipe for this, but feel free to use your own recipe, or your favorite store bought (mine is RAO’S)
