Recipe box: Two self-reliant meatless dishes

Today, we actually have two recipes, and both are meatless. (Well, technically, there's an egg in the first recipe, which vegans would shun.) Both recipes rely heavily on food storage and/or sustainable items. Enjoy!

Meatless Sausage

1 cup Peas, Beans, Lentils, or Lima Beans, dried
½ cup Breadcrumbs, dried

  1. Soak peas, beans, lentils or lima beans and cook until soft. Drain after cooking.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

  4. Roll sausage in flour and fry in dripping.
