Plant-Based Herb Sausages with not-so Sauerkraut

Jump to Recipe

If you’re looking for a plant-based option this Oktoberfest how about a feast of plant-based sausages and sauerkraut.

I have to confess, I’m not a fan of traditional sauerkraut. However I do love cabbage. Particularly when it’s gently sautéed in a small amount of olive oil and dairy free margarine or spread.

To provide a hint of German flavor I’ve included Juniper Berries and Caraway Seeds which are very popular spices in German cooking.

Shredded Cabbage

For this sausage and sauerkraut feast I’ve decided on ready made sausages. There are so many flavorful and healthy varieties in your local specialty green grocer or supermarket.

I’m sure my High School German teacher would have been more impressed with my cooking than my language skills!

Happy Oktoberfest everyone!
