Day 357 Italian Unsausages

Italian Unsausages

1/2 Cup Bulgar Wheat
1 1/2 Cups Boiling Water
1/2 Cup Sundried Tomatoes, minced (not packed in oil)
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
2 Cups Onion, diced
2 Tablespoons Garlic, minced
1/4 Cup Water
1/4 Tomato Paste
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 Tablespoons Miso
2 Tablespoons Smooth Peanut Butter
1 1/2 Teaspoons Fennel Seeds
1 1/2 Teaspoons Dried Basil
1 Tablespoon Spice Mix (Day 356)
1/2 Teaspoon Dried Marjoram
1/2 Teaspoon Dried Rosemary
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper, ground
1 1/2 Cups Vital Wheat Gluten

1.  Put the bulgar wheat and sundried tomatoes in a bowl and pour the water over.  Let soak for 15 minutes.

2.  Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the onion and garlic.  Saute until fairly tender.  Turn off the heat and add the water, tomato paste, soy sauce, miso, and peanut butter.  Mix well.  Use an immersion blender to roughly puree the mixture.  Put in a large bowl.

3.  Add the bulgar wheat and tomato mix to the puree.  Add the spices and and mix.  Add the vital wheat gluten and mix well. Roll the mixture into 12 sausages about 4 inches long and 1 inch in diameter.  Wrap each log in aluminum foil.
Ready to steam

4.  Place the logs in a steamer and steam for about 1 hour.  They will be very soft at first, but will firm up as they cool.  Store in the refrigerator for one week.

Goes well in Jambalaya
