Fiber Rich Plant based Sausage Bake - Vegan

Most day's I'm not in the mood to spend hours in the kitchen. Don't get me wrong, I love creating new recipes and making delicious, nutritious food but, I love recipes that are quick, easy and that doesn't take up a lot of my time.

As you know, food is only a part of my life, and should not be taking up a lot of my 'mental bandwidth' in a day. Compared to when I was stuck in Diet Culture, counting calories all day and obsessing about food, I spend less than 10% of my days thinking about food. It doesn't have the hold on me it used to have before I repaired my relationship with it.

It's really freeing.

And that might be why I love sharing simple, mostly plant-based (wider variety and lighter on the energetic body) recipes with you so that you can also live your life, think about things that actually matter and simply enjoy food without it being a big issue for you every day.

So here is a favorite Plant Based recipe of mine to enjoy with some of my all time favorite products and brands (follow the links to check them out). If you try it, remember to share a pic on your social media and tag me @melissa_lainn_wellness because I love sharing the joys of food with you!

Fiber Rich Plant based Sausage Bake - Vegan

Prep time: 15 min

Total time: 1hr 15min


4 x plant based sausages (I used Fry’s Breakfast Bangers)

2 x small sweet potatoes peeled and cut into cubes

Half a butternut, peeled and cut into cubes

1 x red/brown onion, peeled and cut into quarters

½ a cup of fresh or frozen peas

1 cup of cherry tomatoes

½ a cup of cooked black beans (or any beans of your choice)

½ a cup of cooked chickpeas

4-6 cloves of garlic, peeled

330ml of Rugani’s ZZ2 100% Romanita Tomato Juice

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Salt and pepper

Fresh basil leaves for garnish


Heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Add all of the ingredients to a baking dish and pour the tomato juice over it and drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste or your favorite veggie spice. Pop it into the oven for 60min, checking on it every 20 min to stir all of the veggies, making sure they are evenly cooked.

Remove from the oven, add fresh basil leaves for a garnish and enjoy.
