Vegan Broccoli Slaw and Grilled Seitan Sausages

Remember the seitan italian sausages that I posted a few weeks ago? Well, I pulled a few of the extra out of the freezer and grilled them last night. Yum! I can’t decide if I like them better smothered in peppers and onions or dipped in yellow mustard? Next time we are going to go with sauerkraut and buns!

The real star of the meal was the broccoli slaw. Meijer had little baggies of mixed broccoli slaw on sale last week and I was inspired. I threw 3 of those, a cup of raisins, a cup of roasted and chopped peanuts, and the dressing together and viola! Vegan broccoli slaw salad! The dressing consisted of 3 tablespoons of Trader Joe’s Reduced Fat Mayo (which happens to be super cheap and vegan!), 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar. The vegan version of Broccoli slaw is so much lower in calories and fat than the ones made with real mayo or Marzetti’s coleslaw dressing. Trader Joe’s reduced Fat mayo is only 35 calories per tablespoon- added bonus.

I have been dying to try Happy Herbivore’s “bacon” bits for a while and thought it would be a great topping for the salad. Smokey sweet TVP crumbles were a perfect fit. They will be super tasty the next time we make a cobb salad!
