Tips For The Best Sausage, Peppers & Potatoes
- I like to keep my my veggies more al dente, even the potatoes, but you can add a little extra time at the end to soften to your liking.
- The smaller you cut the potatoes, the faster they will cook. I cut mine into 1/2 pieces.
- For variation, poblanos or Anaheim chilis in place of the sweet peppers would be delicious.
- The vegan sausage I used was Tofurky, but Field Roast is fantastic too. I just used what was available at the time of putting this sausage, peppers and potatoes recipe together.
What To Serve With Sausage, Peppers & Potatoes
Serve Sausage, Peppers & Potatoes along side fresh grilled corn on the cob and a cool refreshing salad on the side. It would also be great with these delicious sides, Healthy Baked Beans, Vegan Potato Salad or Classic Vegan Coleslaw, making a terrific well-balanced lunch or dinner.
How To Make Sausage, Peppers & Potatoes
- In a large pan, heat oil over medium. Add onions, potatoes and vegan sausage, cook uncovered for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, will be ready when potatoes are just fork tender. Cook your potatoes a little longer if needed.
- Add bell peppers and cook another 6 – 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until al dente. Remove from heat, at this point if your potatoes aren’t quite tender enough for you, cover with the lid and let steam a bit. Season with salt & pepper.
I would be happy to eat this easy vegan meal at any picnic, potluck or other type of gatherings. This is one of those meals that can be served any time of the year no matter what the occasion.
