After perfecting Vegan Sausage Links and easy Vegan Chorizo, we knew what we had to do: Vegan Chorizo Links! By tweaking and combining the two recipes, we’ve created the best of both worlds-smoky, spicy flavor, but in link form!

Even better? They’re plant-based, gluten-free, soy-free, and made with just 10 wholesome ingredients! Not only are these chorizo links packed with flavor and super satisfying, but they ‘re incredibly versatile and so great as a freezer staple. Let us show you how it’s done!

Origins of Chorizo

Chorizo is a spicy sausage enjoyed in many regions of the world, but it’s especially popular in and believed to have originated in Spain and Portugal. It’s also common in Mexican cuisine, where it’s typically spicer due to swapping imported Spanish paprika for local chili peppers. The following is a similarly spicy, smoky version made plant-based and in link form!

How to make Vegan chorizo links

These chorizo links are made with a wholesome oat, bean, and mushroom base.

Flax eggs provide the binding, while chili powder, smoked paprika, and ketchup add a smoky, spicy chorizo flavor. Optional cayenne and garlic add even more punch.

Once the mixture is pulsed in the food processor, it develops a beautiful red-tinted color.

We add in chopped walnuts for a contrast of textures and a boost of omega 3s. The mixture is then ready to form into links.

The links will be tender before steaming but become firm once cooked thanks to the magical properties of oats.

They are then ready for browning in a skillet or freezing for quick, fiber-filled breakfasts.

We hope you LOVE these vegan chorizo links! They’re:

  • Smoky
  • Spicy
  • Meet
  • Flavor-packed
  • & So delicious!

Enjoy them alongside your favorite breakfast or brunch dishes, or in paella, breakfast hash, burritos, tacos (recipe coming soon!), and beyond! They’re especially delicious served with our Southwest tofu Scramble, perfect Roasted Potatoes, and Zesty Mango Habanero Hot Sauce.

Vegan Chorizo Sausage Links (10 Ingredients!)

Spicy, savory, and oh-so-satisfying vegan chorizo sausage links that are gluten-free and soy-free. Just 10 ingredients and simple methods required!

Ingredients

US Customary-metric

FLAX EGGS

  • 3 tbsp flaxseed (ground flaxseed)
  • 1/2 cup water

SAUSAGE

  • 1 (15 oz.) can red beans
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats (certified gluten-free as needed)
  • 1 Cremini mushrooms cup, roughly chopped
  • 5 tsp chili powder mixture (no chilli flakes or cayenne pepper)
  • 5 tsp smoked peppers
  • 1/2-1 tsp cayenne (optional)
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped (optional)
  • 1 tsp sea salt and black pepper
  • 1/2 Cup walnut, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil (for cooking)

Instruction

Prepare flaxseed eggs by adding flaxseed meal and water to a small bowl and stirring to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes to thicken.

Drain and rinse the beans, and pat dry with a kitchen towel or paper towel.

In a food processor or blender, pulse the oats until they form a coarse flour — there should not be any whole oats visible.

Add the beans and mushrooms to the oats and pulse a few times to break the beans and mushrooms into smaller pieces. Then add the flaxseed eggs, chili powder, smoked peppers, cayenne pepper (optional, start with the lesser amount), ketchup, garlic (optional), and salt and pepper. Pulse to fully combine, but avoid processing it into too smooth of a paste-leave some chunks for texture.

Taste and season with more salt and pepper as needed, more paprika for smokiness, or cayenne for heat. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the chopped walnuts until fully combined.

Scoop 2 tablespoons of the mixture and form into a mini sausage link shape. If it is too sticky, run your hands under some water and try again with slightly wet hands. Using 2 tablespoons will make ~16 sausages, or you can also use a 1/3-cup measurement to make 8 sausages about 6 inches long (amounts as the recipe is written // adjust if the altering number of servings).

Once formed, place sausages on a parchment paper lined plate and refrigerate in the fridge for 20-25 minutes, until firm and not sticky to the touch.

With a steamer insert, bring a few inches of water to a boil in a large pot. Remove your sausages from the refrigerator and wrap each sausage in a small piece of parchment paper, twisting the ends to seal. Place the sausages in the steamer basket and steam for 30 minutes, until firm and cooked through. Add more water at the 15-minute mark (or as needed) to avoid scorching your pot.

If freezing for after, cool completely and transfer to the freezer. Alternatively, to cook and brown the sausages, heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat and add 1 tbsp (15 ml) oil to the pan. Remove the sausages from the parchment paper, add as many as will fit in the pan comfortably, and fry for 5-10 minutes, turning every once in a while until all sides are slightly browned. Repeat with more oil and sausages. You can also cook the sausages on a grill if desired!

Enjoy these on their own or with your favorite breakfast or brunch items. They’d be especially delicious with our Southwest tofu Scramble, perfect Roasted Potatoes, corn Tortillas, and Mango Habanero Hot Sauce.

Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month. They can be cooked on the stovetop directly from frozen.
