Vegetarian Sausage, Potato, and Corn Boil
with green salad
Smarts: If this is your first boil check out this video we filmed the first time we featured the meal in 2017. (This video shows the original shrimp-based version, but the vegetarian version uses the same staggered approach to adding each ingredient).
- Onions, medium - 1, quartered
- Sausage, any vegan / vegetarian style - 16 oz, sliced into 3” / 7.6 cm pieces
- Corn - 4 ears, husks removed, sliced into 4” / 10 cm pieces
- Lemons - 1, halved
- Potatoes, red - 1 lb, halved (sub new potatoes)
- Old Bay seasoning - 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp (sub any other seasoning mix like Cajun)
- Butter - 3 Tbsp
- Dipping sauces of choice - for serving (like cocktail sauce )
- Tomatoes, Roma - 3, chopped
- Lettuce, romaine - 1 heart, chopped (sub any salad greens)
- Honey - 1/2 tsp
- Vinegar, red or white wine - 1 1/2 Tbsp
- Oil, olive - 3 Tbsp
- Onions / Vegan sausage - Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Corn - Remove husks and use a sharp knife to slice into 4” / 10 cm pieces (no need to be exact, but it will be easier to fit the corn in the pot in pieces). (Can be done up to 2 days ahead)
- Tomatoes / Lettuce / Lemons - Prep as directed.
- Potatoes - Slice potatoes in half.
- Fill a large stockpot with water. Season generously with salt and first part of Old Bay. Squeeze juice from lemons into water and then drop lemon rinds into water. Bring to a boil.
- When water is boiling, add potatoes and onions. Boil for 10 minutes, until potatoes are starting to turn tender.
- While potatoes are boiling, in a large mixing bowl whisk together honey, vinegar, and olive oil. Add lettuce and tomatoes to dressing. Wait to toss until right before serving.
- Return to boiling water. Add corn and vegan sausage to potatoes and continue to boil until corn is tender, 7 to 8 minutes more.
- When corn is tender, drain and transfer to a large serving platter.
- Melt butter in the microwave and stir in second part of Old Bay. Drizzle butter over vegetables / vegan sausage.
- Toss salad. Serve boil with dipping sauces of choice and salad on the side. Enjoy!
Really satisfying and easy. One pot. Like crab boils on Maryland's eastern shore. Should double the spice if you don't have kids. Couldn't find Old Bay so I used adobo which worked well. And about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of frozen corn can sub for the two ears of corn. AND I used everything in the fridge. No waste. This site is so worth it.1 Helpful

SO yummy. We loved this dish. It seems like a special occasion but it’s actually really simple to make. We served it with rice.0 Helpful
“This is the best meal I’ve ever had that I can remember at least since last year” ~6yo daughter. It was really great, similar to cabbage and carrots cooked with corned beef, the onion was even delicious! And our favorite vegan sausage all covered in a butter. Will double everything next time (except spices, can’t get too spicy for the family).0 Helpful
