Salami guisado is a dish our families will make either for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We wanted to put our own spin to this Dominican dish by making it vegan and vegetarian friendly. We substitute the salami with a vegan sausage. We use Field Roast Smoked Apple Sage sausage, which is made with wheat gluten, dried apples, Yukon Gold potatoes, yeast extract, onion, spices, sea salt and rubbed sage.


  • 4 Field Roast Sausage (Smoked Apple Sage), cubed

  • 1 small red onion, chopped

  • ¼ cup of oil

  • ¼ cup tomato paste 

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • Salt to taste


  • Cut the vegan sausages into cubes and cut your onion into fine strips.  

  • In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. 

  • Add the tomato paste and red onions,  sauté for 3 minutes until onions are translucent.

  • Stir in apple cider vinegar over medium heat for 1 minute.

  • Add the sausage and cook sausage for 7 minutes minutes, or until desired doneness. 

  • Serve with mangú (mashed green plantains), boiled yuca, or your favorite root vegetable.
