It has been a long time since I sat down to write a blog and this can happen when I get into the planning and creating phase of my business. I am in the process of creating some new programs which I am hoping to share with you over the next few months as well as a couple of awesome events that are coming up soon – details of these I am excited to share below.
As a little thank you for sticking by me during my hiatus, I wanted to share a recipe with you. This weekend, we took a trip to Heatherlea Farm and stocked up on some local meat and goodies. One of my favourite things we picked up there were sausages, they had a variety of meat types and awesome flavours you wouldn’t think of such as chicken masala or maple bacon. We often throw them on the BBQ and pair them with a salad for a quick meal but lately, I have become a big fan of sheet pan dinners and so check out my recipe below to make a simple and easy dinner for the family.
One Pan Sausage with Roasted Garlic Veggies
1 red bell pepper (de-seeded and sliced)
1 zucchini (cut into rounds)
1 sweet potato (medium, diced)
4 stalks celery (sliced diagonally)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp dried basil
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
4 organic or naturally raised (preferably local) chicken or turkey sausages
- Preheat oven to 400Fand line a baking sheet with parchment
- Place the red bell pepper, zucchini, sweet potato and celery in a large Add in the minced garlic, balsamic vinegar, dried basil and olive oil. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Toss well and then spread the veggies across the baking sheet in an even layer. Set the sausage on top. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until cooked through, flipping the sausage at the halfway point.
- Remove the pan from the oven and divide onto Enjoy!
