  • Lightlife vegan sausage
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chickpea flour/garbanzo bean flour
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp each of garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal
  • Oil for shallow fry


  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • 2 and 1/2 cups nondairy milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix together 1 cup of the chickpea flour with the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper.
  2. Form the lightlife sausage into 4 ‘patties’ then coat them in the seasoned chickpea flour and set aside.
  3. Mix the water with the remaining 1/2 cup chickpea flour and set aside.
  4. Pour the crispy rice cereal into the remaining seasoned chickpea flour and lightly crunch up the crispy rice cereal in the process but keep some whole.
  5. Dip the floured ‘steaks’ into the ‘egg’ mixture of chickpea flour and water and then into the crispy rice cereal chickpea flour mixture.
  6. In a preheated cast iron pan of vegetable oil, shallow fry the ‘steaks’ in batches until done.
  7. Keep the ‘steaks’ warm in the oven while you make the gravy.
  8. Remove all but about 1/4 cup oil in the pan. Then add the cornstarch and whisk for one minute. Then add the nondairy milk until incorporated and thick. Season with salt and pepper.
  9. Enjoy!
