Seitan Sausage

This is one of these recipes that I make in bulk and then freeze for an easy lunch or dinner for another day. These sausages are fenomenal, very high protein and quite low-carb, so they make for a great dinner when combined with some cauli-rice, keto bbq sauce and salad. Hope you enjoy them!
