SYNDIAN SAUSAGE, MUSHROOM PASTA
Oh my pasta! Not going to lie, this is probably my favourite recipe that I have created for Syndian. This recipe is gluten free, vegan and can easily be made onion and garlic free too. It serves approx 4.
Whilst creating this tasty meal, I forgot how good the mushroom, hemp and sumac Syndian sausages are. To the point where they are my new favourite product (big call, I know). If you haven’t yet tried them make sure you do. So much flavour and if you slice them up, you will enjoy a nice crisp too.
As always, this recipe is really easy and can quickly become a family staple. Great idea for meal preps too if that’s your thing. It’s loaded with vitamins, protein and good fats and carbs to keep you full and fuelled. Plant-based style. I hope you enjoy this tasty dish.
