ABOUT THE RECIPE:

This tantalizing Italian-Style Sweet Peppers with Vegan Sausage recipe was inspired by the sausage and peppers dish served each year at the annual Feast of San Gennaro in lower Manhattan’s Little Italy.

Makes 4 servings

2

INGREDIENTS:

1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 to 1½ cups vegetable broth, plus more as needed
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning blend
⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
3 sweet yellow, red, and/or orange peppers, seeded and sliced
4 large (14 to 16 ounces) vegan sausages

3

INSTRUCTIONS:

Put the onion and 2 tablespoons broth in a large skillet. Cook over medium-low heat for 3 minutes. Add the Italian seasoning and cayenne pepper. Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Add more broth, 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, as needed to prevent sticking. Add the peppers. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, adding more broth, as needed to prevent sticking.

4

Slice each sausage, on the diagonal, into 5 or 6 pieces. Add the sausage and 1/4 cup broth to the skillet. Cover and cook 6 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, and adding more broth, 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed to prevent sticking. Serve in warm, crusty, hoagie-style buns or spooned over brown rice, quinoa, or whole-grain pasta.
