Vegan Turmeric Sausages with Sweet Garlic Sauce

I absolutely love this vegan turmeric sausage and garlic dish. Its full of flavour, however warning, it has alot of garlic in, so potentially major garlic breath. Garlic is really good for you though, so I'd recommend it! To mix things up abit, adding the turmeric spice (which I love) gives the sausages a nice yellow tinge. This makes a good portion for 2 people.
