Easy Sausage and Pepper Sauce Recipe

Pantry cooking is very popular right now.  I think it's mainly because we are all trying to save money and what better way to do that than to use what you already have on hand.  I have found, in my own home, that I'm able to keep my grocery bill pretty reasonable by practicing this.  It also helps me stay creative in the kitchen by really thinking about how I can use the ingredients in my pantry, fridge, and freezer.  One of our favorite pantry meals is this super simple Easy Sausage and Pepper Sauce over rice.   

I love this Easy Sausage and Pepper Sauce recipe because, aside from some basic spices, it only uses 4 ingredients that I usually keep on hand. I think you're really going to like this one, so let me show you how I make it.  


Q:  You listed sausage in the recipe.  What kind of sausage.

A:  The answer is simple.  Any kind of sausage you like.  I have used them all and have yet to find one that doesn't taste good.  Whatever you like, use.  

Q: Can this be made vegan/vegetarian?

A:  Yes!  Easily!  You can substitute the sausage for plant based breakfast sausage such as the Impossible Meat Breakfast Sausage tube or the Beyond Meat Italian Sausage links.  If you want a more whole foods alternative you can use TVP and season it with spices such as sage, thyme, fennel seeds, paprika, nutmeg, chili flakes, etc.  You can also make a walnut meat using the same spices which I have a recipe for HERE.  If you want to keep it REALLY simple, you can use tofu and season it with a little soy sauce and the seasonings I mentioned before. Also you will use vegetable stock instead of chicken broth as well. 

Q:  Can I use fresh peppers and onions for this recipe?

A:  Yes.  I just always have frozen on hand because I can get it for a great price at dollar tree.
