The classic pairing of sausage and mashed potatoes gets a low-carb update with mashed cauliflower and onion gravy.
- Yield: 4 Servings
- Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
- Cooking Time: 20 Minutes
- 2 heads cauliflower, cut into small pieces, about 2 lb (1 kg) in total
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
- 8 pork sausages, about 21⁄2 oz (75 g) each
- 2 tbsp arrowroot flour
- 2 cups cold water
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp dried Italian seasoning
- ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
- In a pot with a steamer insert, steam the cauliflower for 12 to 15 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. Set aside.
- In a large non-stick pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Push the onions to the side and add sausages. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then turn the sausages, reduce heat to medium-low, and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes.
- While the sausages cook, prepare the slurry. In a medium bowl, whisk together the arrowroot flour and cold water until well combined.
- Add the slurry to the pan and stir, scraping up any brown bits from the bottom. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove from heat and cover.
- Place the steamed cauliflower in a food processor and process until it reaches the consistency of mashed potatoes.
- In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and Italian seasoning and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the cauliflower, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Stir together and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
- To assemble the meals, add 1 cup mashed cauliflower to each of 4 containers. Top with 2 sausages and divide the gravy evenly among the containers.
