When we cook for each other as a vegetarian/omnivorous couple, it can be difficult to find meals that are culinarily interesting while still having enough protein and other nutrients to keep both of us satisfied- but that's why we started to blog in the first place! This is a light, tasty meal that's great for packed lunches and multiple meals.
We used a vegetarian meat-grain sausage that's made with eggplant, garlic, fennel, and enough spices and texture to liven up the dish. We've found that "replacing" meat with substitutes like grain sausage, soy protein, or seitan won't usually fool a meat-eater- it's better to just appreciate those ingredients for what they are, rather than pretending they're something that they aren't.
