Trader Joe's Italian Sausage-less Sandwich

Italian Sausage-less Sandwich

If you're looking for a quick meal for lunch or dinner, this has to be one you need to try.  I made this for my husband so it does have gluten.  He's Italian and loves Italian food!  Luckily for him, he doesn't have a gluten intolerance and besides that he was really wanting to try this sausage.  How could I refuse him?

For those of you who are vegetarian and can tolerate gluten, he says this sausage gets two thumbs up!!

Vegetarian Lunch


  • Food for Life China Black Rice bread (similar to pumpernickel bread)
  • Trader Joe's Italian Sausage-less Sausage (made from soy but be careful because it does have gluten) with a slice of cheese
  • Mixed Greens Salad with sliced Grapes and drizzled with Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Glass of red wine

Mixed Greens Salad, Grapes and Vinaigrette

For those of you like me, and have a gluten intolerance, I had an egg-less salad (gluten-free and vegan) sandwich, salad, and a drink.

Speaking of Trader Joe's, according to their website, when you see their name on the label there will be:
  • NO artificial flavors, colors or preservatives
  • NO MSG
  • NO genetically modified ingredients
  • NO added Trans Fats
Isn't that too cool knowing that you can buy a higher quality item at a lower price just because it is an in-house label?

P.S., We did not receive compensation monetarily or through free products for this review.  All opinions are mine or those of my husband.
