Veggie melange – vegan!


Tonight I created a dinner that was perfect for a chilly, rainy night. I call it Veggie Melange (French for mixture!)

I used onions, garlic, basil, olive oil, butter, potatoes, frozen vegetables, veggie sausages, diced tomatoes, hot sauce, Spike seasoning.  I'd cooked up some red skinned potatoes in the morning so they were ready to be used. I defrosted the frozen veggies in the microwave but you can do it stove top. I used what I had, broccoli, squash, corn, but any kind will do.

Heat some olive oil in a skillet and brown diced onions until softened then add minced garlic and 1/2 t or more of dried basil. While they are cooking, cut up potatoes into smallish pieces. Add to the onions along with 2 T butter. Season with Spike (or other seasoning mix that you like.) This really makes the mixture rich and good tasting. Mix and continue cooking on medium heat. Cut up the vegetables into small pieces and add to potatoes along with a cup of diced tomatoes with liquid and Texas Pete, or other hot sauce to taste. Continue cooking until all warm and combined looking. While this is going on, cut the sausages into 1/2" rounds. Remove potato mixture from skillet into a big bowl. Cover to keep warm. Add a bit more olive oil into skillet and heat. Brown sausage rounds. Place on top of the potato mixture and serve.
