Nicholas was looking for vegan Italian-style "sausage".



It looks like Boca Foods, LightLife, and Sunergia Soyfoods all make what
you want. I haven't tried any of these (don't think I've even seen them).

Yves Veggie Cuisine makes an excellent Italian Ground Round (quite similar
to ground beef, but w/o the salmonella) that I can highly recommend. You
could make it into lasagna or meatballs. The Mexican Ground Round is
really good for tacos -- you cannot tell the difference.

Personally, I'd take vegan sausage w/real milk over meat sausage w/soy
milk, but then I loathe the chalkiness and overall taste of soy milk. Some
types of soy milk are sweetened as well, which would make them doubly
useless for cooking.
