  • 2 links vegan Italian Sausage I used Beyond Meat
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic grated
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves or sage (from aprox. 8 sprigs)
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 3 cups cashew milk 1 cup cashews + 2.5 cups water


  • Cut the sausages in 4 pieces lengthwise then dice up into small cubes.
  • Preheat a heavy bottom skillet over medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the Italian sausage and pan sear until it starts to brown around the edges. Transfer to a bowl and keep warm.

  • In the same pan you cooked the sausage add the onion. Toss to coat well in all the sausage drippings scraping up the brown bits from the bottom. Add a little more olive oil if needed.
    1/2 onion
  • Once the onion is softened and begins to get some color add the thyme and garlic and give everything a quick stir until you can smell the garlic.

  • Pour in the white wine to deglaze the pan, using a spatula to scrape up all the little brown bits from the bottom. Simmer away until all the wine has evaporated.
    1/3 cup dry white wine
  • Stir in the cashew milk and bring to a simmer. Cook the gravy for a few minutes until thickened to your liking. (To thin it out just add a splash of veggie stock or water).
    3 cups cashew milk
  • Add the reserved browned sausage pieces back into the gravy and combine. Remember to save a few pieces for garnish if desired.

  • Adjust seasonings to taste with salt and pepper and serve with mashed potatoes, biscuits or dinner rolls..


  • To thicken the gravy simmer down to your liking. To thin it out add in a splash or two of veggie stock and  stir well to combine.
  • Vegan Sausage - I used the spicy Italian Beyond Sausage because I truly love it here. Their breakfast patties are also delicious and can be used instead, so is the Lightlife brand or your favorite plant based sausage.
