Here I would like to introduce my recipe Vegan Liver Sausage to you.

A hearty and quickly prepared spread that beats the taste of many a common meat liver sausage even without animals.

You have to experience this and be it out of curiosity: Vegan liver sausage tastes damn similar to a Fleischleberwurst!

For a long time I have been suspecting that meat is only carried by smoking, curing and its spices. The interesting thing is: banal tofu can do that too. If I use smoked tofu and use the same herbs, I get the same taste experience as with meat. You don’t necessarily have to be vegan or vegetarian to like this vegetable liver sausage.

Have fun with the preparation and good luck!
