This flavorful and hearty Vegetarian Kielbasa is naturally vegan and gluten free. Super easy to make it’s a satisfying and delicious dairy free alternative for everyone.



  • 1 cup rice, uncooked
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 5 oz vegan sausage, slices
  • salt, pepper

Optional add ons:

  • 1 cup black beans, cooked and drained
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 3/4 cup onions, diced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced


  1. First cook the rice according the package directions. You will probably need 2 cups water for 1 cup rice.  The cooking time may vary on brand but it should be done in about 10 minutes.
  2. While the rice is cooking, prepare your vegan sausage and chop the optional veggies. Heat a skillet with a bit of oil, or vegetable broth for an oil free alternative.
  3. Add optional onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Fry for around 3 minutes, next comes vegan sausage, garlic, cumin, and hot sauce. Cook for 5 minutes more.
  4. Finally finish with optional corn and black beans. Mix into cooked rice and serve in bowls or on plates.
