A delicious meat-free crumble that can be added to any recipe that calls for sausage or beef. These homemade vegan Italian sausage crumbles are savory, satisfying and oh-so-versatile.




  1. In a small bowl, combine the smoked paprika, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, black pepper, vinegar, liquid aminos and vegetable stock. Stir to incorporate completely. 
  2. In a deep frying pan over medium heat, toast the fennel seeds until fragrant. Stirring frequently approx. 2 minutes. 
  3. Next add the oil to the pan along with the Beyond Crumbles. Stir occasionally, allowing the Crumbles to brown on all sides. 
  4. Once browned, pour the seasoning mixture onto the Beyond Crumbles and fennel in the pan. Stir continuously until the liquid has absorbed or evaporated. Transfer to a bowl and use immediately for pizzas, pastas or in any recipe you would use sausage.
  5. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
