Low-Carb Sausages & Mash with Red Wine Gravy

by KetoDietApp.com

Step 1Prepare the sausages. Preheat the oven to 190 °C/ 375 °F. Cut the sausages in half lenghtwise (option to leave whole if you prefer) and place on greaseproof lined baking tray.

Step 2Peel the onions, slice into wedges and place on the same tray as the sausages. Drizzle the onions in a little ghee or olive oil (approx. 1 tablespoon) and toss.

Step 3Roast the sausages and onions in the oven for 30 minutes until cooked through. Cooking times will vary depending on how crispy you like your sausages and whether you cut them in half or left them whole. Just ensure they are fully cooked with no pink meat.

Step 4Prepare the gravy. Slice the mushrooms. Peel and finely dice the onion. Heat the butter or olive oil in a pan on a medium heat and sauté the mushrooms for 2 minutes. After 1 minute of cooking time add the onion for 1 minute. Add the stock, herbs and red wine and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes until the sauce reduces and becomes concentrated. This is how you get more flavour. If you prefer a thicker gravy, before you start add a little stock to a cup and mix 1 teaspoon of arrowroot to form a paste, add a little more stock until mixed well, stir into the mushrooms until smooth and then stir in the rest of the stock and allow to reduce as indicated above.

Step 5Prepare the mash. Whilst the gravy is cooking, place a boiling pan of water on the hob. Remove the skin, stalks and leaves from the cauliflower and celeriac. Chop into chunks, about 2 cm in diameter and add to the hot water with a pinch of salt. Boil for 15 minutes until soft, but still with a bite.

Step 6Once cooked, drain the water, dry off on the heat and then transfer to a high speed blender or food processor. Pulse in short burst until smooth, you may have to scrape the sides a few times with a spatula. Do not blend on full or you will end up with soup! Option to use a hand blender or masher. (It just won’t be as smooth but still tastes good!) Place the low carb mash back into the pan and stir through the butter or olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 7Place the Keto mash in a bowl, top with sausages and mushroom red wine gravy.
