A Fusion of Old and New

This dish is more than just a recipe; it’s a fusion of the old and the new, a celebration of culinary innovation that stays true to its roots.

Ingredients: Simple, Yet Full of Flavor

  • Vegan Seitan Sausage: A meat-free alternative that captures the essence of traditional German sausage, both in texture and taste.
  • Pretzel Dough: The soul of the recipe, bringing the unmistakable chew and flavor of a classic pretzel.
  • Coarse Salt: For that authentic pretzel finish, adding a subtle crunch and flavor enhancement.

Preparation: Crafting the Perfect Bite

  1. Encasing the Sausage: Begin by wrapping bite-sized pieces of seitan sausage in strips of pretzel dough. This step is key to achieving the perfect balance of sausage and pretzel in each bite.
  2. The Boiling Technique: Briefly boil the wrapped sausages before skewering them. This traditional pretzel method ensures the dough achieves its characteristic texture and taste.
  3. Baking to Perfection: Sprinkle the skewers with coarse salt and bake until they turn a beautiful golden brown. This process not only cooks the seitan sausage but also transforms the dough into a warm, soft pretzel encasing.
  4. Serving with a German Twist: Accompany these delightful sticks with vegan mustard, the perfect condiment to complement the rich flavors.
