A new plant-based sausage described by its makers as ‘the closest replication to a pork sausage in the UK’ is launching today.

The Moving Mountains Sausage is currently exclusively available from London vegan restaurant Tell Your Friends, founded by Made in Chelsea sisters Lucy and Tiffany Watson.

The Sausage is available as part of a white bean hotpot dish, which also includes root vegetables and scalloped potatoes. Between December 13-15, customers can get a 30 percent discount on the dish.

The sausage is made from a range of plant-based ingredients, including oyster mushrooms and beetroot, pea protein, wheat, soy, oats, and coconut oil, seasoned with pepper and nutmeg. It is fortified with vitamin b12.

According to Moving Mountains, the product ‘sizzles, smells, and browns just like the real thing’ when it is being cooked.

It has zero cholesterol, 14g of plant protein (per 100g of Sausage), is vegan and free-from antibiotics and hormones.

‘Spent years perfecting it’

“We can’t wait to unveil the 100 percent plant-based Moving Mountains® Sausage at Tell Your Friends. The restaurant is the perfect partner for us, as it shares our mission to make truly inspiring flexitarian dining available to everyone,” Simeon Van der Molen, founder of Moving Mountains, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“We have spent years perfecting the Sausage recipe with a team of scientists, farmers, and chefs, and it is the closest replication to a pork sausage in the UK. It provides a real solution to the environmental impact of the animal agriculture industry, without compromising on taste.”

Tiffany Watson, co-owner of Tell Your Friends, added: “We are delighted to be the first restaurant in the UK to serve the revolutionary Moving Mountains® Sausage. It’s versatile, delicious, and nutrient-rich. It’s made with the highest quality ingredients, including oyster mushrooms and beetroot, with an amazing plant-based skin, and it looks and smells just like a pork sausage.”
