Second food entry of the day! Maybe this is becoming that food blog that Hesi told me I should make?
Anyway, here’s another easy cave-friendly recipe. Heat up a pan with a little bit of water in the bottom. Not too much water, maybe half a cup. In the meantime, cut up some sausages. These ones are mild Italian from the butcher’s. Make sure they don’t use any filler like bread crumbs or flour. Good quality sausages are all meat and spices. Cut up some veggies too. I put sweet red peppers, green and yellow zuchinni, and cauliflower. You can use whatever you’ve got in the fridge. Onions are good too. Broccoli also works.
By now, the water should be boiling away in the pan. Throw in all the ingredients and stir them around. Let them simmer and sautee until the sausage is cooked all the way through, and the veggies are tender. It takes about 10-12 minutes. Stir in some fresh ground black pepper to taste, and cut up some fresh basil into the mix if you’ve got any. Remove from heat and serve. Enjoy!
see? that’s so much better
I thought sausages are not allowed, but I guess that’s the cooked stuff?
I’m so definitely trying this next week 🙂
did you not put any kind of sauce in there to give it flavor?
yea try to limit your intake of the pre-cooked or pre-smoked meats like sandwich meat or sausages. it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have them, but they tend to be high in salt and also sodium nitrite, which is a carcinogen. anyway, i don’t think it’s as bad as sugar or caffeine, but it’s definitely something you should watch. raw, fresh sausages made from only meat and spices are fine. you don’t really need to add any extra flavour because cooking them in that little bit of water forms a nice gravy that flavours the whole thing 🙂
Mmm : )~~
Very nice indeed.
Hey, Kev – I just saw this commercial for Johnsonville sausages (do you all have those up there?), and the food porn dish they making looked just like your dish up there. Just thought I’d share.
Oh yeah I’ve seen their ads. But when I checked in the store, the packages listed bread crumbs or flour or something a major ingredient, so I’ve never bought those.
