healthy_eatingWhile they might not be an everyday food when you are trying to lose weight, there are sausages and there are sausages.
The cheap snags from the supermarket are not going to cut it if you are trying to eat healthy food.
Often they are quite fatty and don’t contain the highest quality ingredients.
So head to the butcher or even the gourmet or organic section at the supermarket and choose some lean, high quality, low fat sausages.
Any type of sausage will work for this dish, but I tend to lean towards the lamb or beef varieties, as that’s what my family prefers.
You can also use ANY vegetables you like for this dish, so long as they can be cooked in the oven. So think of it as a good excuse to clear out your vegetable crisper when you cook this meal.
Today I’ve used sweet potato, red onion, broccoli and carrot. It might look a bit crazy in the photo but trust me, it tastes amazing.
Why not add in some cherry tomatoes (add these half way through the cooking time), some yellow squash, chopped pumpkin, olives, eggplant, zucchini, corn on the cob – anything you fancy.
It’s very important not to skip the lemon in this dish. It truly makes the meal sing and you will notice the citrus flavours when you tuck in.
The stock brings it all together and keeps everything from drying out.Try this out and I guarantee it will become a family favourite.
