I used a specific brand of grain blend, Trader Joes Harvest Grain Blend, but you should be able to find something similar close to where you live, or mix your own – it consists of Israeli couscous, red quinoa, and split pea garbanzo beans with some dried red peppers and spinach. The same goes for the vegan sausage – if you can’t find Hot or Sweet Italian, use any vegan sausage and add fennel seed, and a little extra garlic and red chili flakes.
