After leaving Ovenly, the bakery she helped to found, Erin Patinkin teamed up with Cara Nicoletti, a butcher, and Ariel Hauptman, who was at Greyston Bakery, to create Seemore Meats & Veggies, a food company with a line of vegetable-forward sausages as its first product. These are not 100 percent plant-based meat substitutes; vegetables like broccolini, potatoes and beets figure significantly in their composition, but they also contain chicken or pork. Though the company’s describes the plump 3-ounce links as “less meat, not meatless,” they actually taste more of protein than plant. The varieties are broccoli melt with broccolini, cheese and pork; baked potato with pork, bacon and cheese; chicken soup with soup vegetables and chicken; and beet with pork and fennel. They come fully cooked.

Seemore Meats & Veggies, $49.99 for two 12-ounce packages, They’re also sold at some Whole Foods stores, $9.99 per package.
