Recipe: Vegan Glamorgan Sausages

Glamorgan sausages vegan british leeks

Another leek recipe to celebrate St David’s Day, and the fact that leeks rock 🤘 This recipe uses vegan cheddar and vegan parmesan for a dairy-free alternative.  These made a filling lunch but would also make a good starter.    The shell of the leek acts as a sausage skin holding in the cheesy filling.  Click here for the recipe for leek, kale and sweet potato tart.

Glamorgan sausage was traditionally made with pork, however the full cheese version became popular due to the Second World War. Usually made with Caerphilly cheese, we’re not aware of any vegan version so this recipe uses vegan cheddar for its availability.

      Hi, this recipe uses vegan cheddar as mentioned in the opening paragraph. I have now updated every following reference of ‘cheddar’ to ‘vegan cheddar’ to make it clearer.
