Paleo (ish)  Sausage and Veggies One Pan Meal

#paleoish is a thing. And it’s MY thing. It means I aim for paleo eating principles, but I tailor it to my personal needs and sanity. I still eat good quality dairy like goats milk yogurt, yummy aged cheeses, and grassfed butter. 

Tonight’s paleoish dinner is an easy favorite and a #onepanmeal . I use #conecuhsausage because it’s a local Alabama delicacy and will blow your freakin’ mind if you’ve never had it before. 

Basically chop whatever veggies you have in the fridge, sprinkle with olive oil and spices of your choice, then cut the sausage and place on top of the veggies on a large pan. I had zucchini, summer squash, an orange bell pepper, purple carrots, asparagus, and a sweet potato. I used Trader Joe’s Everything spice grinder, a little extra garlic powder, and pink salt.  Roast it all at 400F for 25 minutes. Done. The juice and grease from the sausage adds even more flavor to the veggies. If you really want to take this up a notch (from really yummy to mindblowing), add an over-easy egg on top. Whaaaaat!?!? Yep. 

I’ll have a whole post soon about how I’m no longer afraid of fatty sausage grease like this. Fat is my FRIEND. And a delightfully delicious one at that. 

Because the veggie chunks are big, this really only takes 10 minutes to put together. You could even chop all in advance and freeze! This can make as much or as little as you want. Adjust for your needs. I see cooking as an art, not a science. Great for meal prep and leftovers. Guess what I’m having for lunch tomorrow?
