Bookmarked Recipe: “Cook It For Your Love” Sausage Saute (Fake Meat & True Love)

Hi everyone! Today I made the “Cook It For Your Love” sausage saute from Fake Meat & True Love (Vegan MoFo 2017). This was a fun one because it included a few new-to-me things – polenta and patty pan squash, as well as the Krakow Nights seasoning from Penzeys Spices, which I used on broccoli instead of broccolini. I wasn’t as much a fan of the polenta as I’d hoped to be, but overall it was still a great meal! 


Last night, Cringer and Daisy had an epic battle for the box (even though there are plenty of boxes, they always want the one the other is in). Daisy, to be fair, had been in this one first. After Cringer stole it from her, I found Daisy looming over, plotting to steal it back… 


She jumped down, and it soon turned to fisticuffs…




And Daisy stood up and dared Cringer to try anything further… 



And Cringer left…


A victorious Daisy… 



Peace. :)

  1. You know every now and again I'll see a recipe for polenta that looks delicious, and I'll make it and remember that I just don't really care for polenta!
    OMG I love the action shots!! Daisy, good for you getting your box back!!

    1. Funnily enough, I liked the polenta better when I re-heated the leftovers for dinner tonight! I was pretty proud of Daisy; Cringer usually pushes her around a lot, so it was good to see her stand up for herself! :)

  4. Your sausage sauté looks delicious with all those fresh vegetables! It sounds like it would be very good over creamy/soft polenta, too. I'd never heard of that spice blend before but it does sound nice.
    And ooh, what a riveting battle between Daisy and Cringer. Cats do take their cardboard boxes seriously. I hope Cringer found another good one to sit in!

    1. Thanks, Bonnie! The funniest thing is that there's a box the same size underneath the other end of the table and they both like that one, too, but of course they only want it when it's already occupied! :)

  5. Daisy looks so proud and also so innocent!

    I love polenta, but normally cook it myself and add seasoning rather than using the prepared stuff. Though the prepared stuff is great for cutting up to make crunchy polenta croutons or fries in the oven!

    1. Thanks, Susan! I do remember seeing polenta fries and wanting to try them; the croutons sound like a fun idea, too! Daisy seemed a bit surprised that she was actually able to intimidate Cringer into leaving the box, haha! :)

  6. It sounds pretty yummy. I've only like polenta grilled, but you can eat it like a porridge but you need to eat it fast before it solidifies. It might help to use homemade polenta instead of from a tube... maybe?

    1. Thanks, Jennifer! After making this recipe, I saw a polenta mix at the grocery store -- maybe something to try in the future, but I'm not in a rush, haha! :)
