How to cook frozen Vegetarian sausages

(8 Posts)

I’m trying to make a hot pot and as i’m trying to be healthier i’m going to have the Linda Mccarthy vege sausages while my OH has normal sausages.

Question is, how do i defrost the vegetarian sausages? I need them to be soft so I can put in the hotpot with my OHs ones! Can they even be defrosted as they’re oven ones!

Thanks in advance, and sorry for the silly question!

If you are putting the normal sausages in the same hot pot then you are going to have the saturated fat from them in the hot pot that you are eating anyway.
iir Linda McCartney wasn’t actually all that healthy, but I would probably just cook them separately so they don’t break up in the hot pot & then have a serving of the veg & pots from the hot pot.

Linda McCartney sausages are rubbish. Try cauldron ones, I find them much nicer

And most veggie sausages you cook from frozen

And I grill them. They come out nicer than in oven

Well vegetarian ones aren't necessarily healthier- and all the fat from the meat ones will be in the hotpot too

You can't defrost Linda sausages. Try the Richmond vegan ones as they come chilled, but as people say all the meat fat will be in the casserole. Personally I'd cook the sausages separately (both types) and add them just before serving.
