Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the sausages and broccoli

  • Cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets; trim any coarse stems.
  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausages and cook, turning occasionally, until starting to brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the broccoli, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sausages are cooked through and the broccoli is crisp-tender, 5 to 6 minutes.

Transfer the broccoli to a plate and the sausages to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut the sausages on the diagonal into 1-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan. While the sausages and broccoli are cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Remove the stems from the mushrooms; thinly slice the caps.


Cook the mushroom ragù; finish the dish

In the same pan used for the sausages and broccoli, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. 

Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the marinara, ¼ cup [½ cup] water, and as many chile flakes as you like. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce starts to thicken, 4 to 6 minutes. Working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the sausages and broccoli and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the sausages, broccoli, and mushroom ragù to individual bowls. Garnish with as much vegan “Parmesan” as you like and serve any remaining “Parmesan” on the side.
