Weekends are all about comfort food but that doesn’t mean they can’t also be healthy right?

Here is my scrumptious recipes for sausages (bangers in UK terminology) and mash with a delicious onion gravy that your family will love you for serving up or simply indulging in yourself!

Serves 4

Ingredients

8 sausages (I used Linda McCartneys Lincolnshire sausages suitable for vegans)
1 tbsp sunflower oil

Mashed Potato Ingredients
10 medium sized white potatoes, peeled and boiled in salted water until soft
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard (optional however adds a delicious flavour to your mash)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black salt
1/4 cup plant based milk (I used oat for creaminess however any variety works)
1 tsp plant based butter (I used Vitalite)

Onion Gravy Ingredients
2 medium sized onions, peeled and sliced.  **If you don’t use onions, use 1/2 cup of white cabbage, sliced instead**
1 tsp sunflower oil
1 tbsp soy sauce or Braggs (amino acids)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup boiling water
2 tsp gluten free flour (for thickening)

Method

  1. Get the potatoes boiling until they are soft enough, drain, return to saucepan and mash with other ingredients
  2. In another saucepan add the sunflower oil and start to saute the onions/cabbage with soy sauce and black pepper.  Mix for about 10 minutes before adding water.  Stir, turn heat down and leave to soften for 5 minutes
  3. In a small dish add 2 tsp of gluten free flour with 4 tbsp of cold water, mix before adding to gravy mix.  Add extra hot water to create the gravy consistency desired
  4. Meanwhile, in a frying pan add the oil and start to saute the sausages until they are cooked through, turning regularly.  This will take about 15-20 minutes.  Alternatively, you can bake these in the oven, pre-heated at 190C and bake for 30 minutes, turning over half way through.
  5. When all the different components are ready, take a large bowl/dish and plate up the mashed potatoes first, laying the sausages either side of the mashed potatoes and topping with the gravy.
  6. If desired, garnish with fresh chopped coriander or parsley.
  7. Enjoy

TIPS

  • In stead of making your own gravy, you can opt to use ready made store bough gravy (just make sure it does not contain any animal products)
  • White cabbage works just as well as onions if you don’t use onions #paleo #janediet #fodmap
  • Soy Sauce/Braggs is used to replace salt and gives the brown colouring desired to create gravy however sea salt works fine if you don’t want to use soy sauce!
