An Ode to Field Roast: The Best Vegan Tailgate Food

Sorry for the hiatus, law school exams will do that to you.  But I am back now and will be posting regularly, even through the offseason.

I did make it down to the tailgate two weeks ago on bike.  A quick trip to the muni lot is better than skipping it altogether.  I brought a tupperware of cucumber/tomato salad and Sara had a package of Chipotle Field Roast

sausages.  That's it. Nothing creative or off the wall, but still so good!

When in a pinch the number one vegan tailgate food is Field Roast sausage.  There is no debate.  From the real ingredients to ancient traditional recipes, Field Roast are a hit at tailgates.

I have used Field Roast in a number of recipies here on this blog (chili dogs and stuffed boomers) and in past blog posts over on Love Your Leftovers (lentil soup).  The chipotle is perfect in paella or any pasta dish.  The italian is great in wedding soup or pasta fagole.  The possibilities are endless.

Here are the top 5 reasons why I love Field Roast:
  1. Real food, made by real people.  And they're growing.
  2. It's better than all the competitors, which are usually soy based. 
  3. They are served at Safeco Field in Seattle.  How cool is that?
  4. They don't just have weiners, they also have roasts and deli slices.
  5. 25 grams of protein per sausage.  Where do YOU get YOUR protein?!

  1. It's fun to see those foods being cooked with a tailgate bbq grill! I have one and we use it a lot on outdoor gatherings!
