Gluten free pork sausages, roasted in one open pan with root vegetables and cauliflower, is a simple dish with a few ingredients. It is easy to throw together any vegetables of your choice, add gluten free sausages cut in bite size pieces, mix them all together, and bake in one large pan, spread in a thin layer for a faster roast. Choice of vegetables, available types of sausage flavouring, as well as herbs and spices used, make the dish very flexible. You don’t have to worry about the timing, ready roast can be kept in the warm oven for some time.
Vegetable and sausage bake/roast can be served on its own, with any salad or fresh vegetables.
The choice and quantity of ingredients depend on family size and tastes
- gluten free sausages, I used Pork and Apple Cider gluten free sausages from Aldi
- sweet potato
- olive oil
- fresh thyme
- fresh rosemary
- salt and pepper for seasoning
- artisan sea salt for extra flavour
- egg wash for cauliflower florets
- peel all vegetables and cut them in 1-2 bite pieces
- separate cauliflower in individual florets
- make egg wash for cauliflower, mix 1 egg with 2 table spoons of water and salt for seasoning
- in a bowl mix finely cut fresh thyme and rosemary and 2-3 table spoons of olive oil, add salt and pepper
- add cut root vegetables and cover their surfaces with seasoned olive oil
- in a separate bowl add egg wash to cauliflower florets, try to cover all surfaces with an egg wash
- cut sausages in 4 pieces each
- line baking tray with baking paper (makes washing up easier)
- spread all ingredients evenly in a tray, cauliflower first, followed by vegetables and sausages
- add extra rosemary, sprinkle with extra olive oil and sea salt
- bake in preheated to 200C fan forced oven until all vegetables are ready and soft, it took 1 hour in my oven, using deep ceramic tray
- you can take the tray out of the oven and stir all ingredients half way through the bake to achieve an even cooking and avoid burning some vegetable pieces
Vegetable and sausage roast is a simple, yet amazingly comforting and delicious dish, having it for lunch was filling enough to skip dinner altogether. It is most enjoyable dish for winter.
