Roasted Cauliflower, Cabbage and Chicken Sausage

The Delightful Cauliflower Cabbage and Chicken SausageI’m back on a serious #waistmanagement kick. I (clearly) LOVE delicious food, but I also love delicious, healthy food. Because the waist band has been getting a bit tight, I’m back to cooking more of the delicious, healthy food and less of the food that is just delicious. Tonight, I was digging through the vegetables left in the fridge and realized I had two that I wouldn’t normally put together – cauliflower and cabbage.The Delightful Cauliflower and CabbageMy first thought was a twist on colcannon, but, frankly, dairy hasn’t been terribly kind to my digestion lately. Instead, I decided to go simple. They’re both cruciferous vegetables that caramelize beautifully when they’re roasted. I saw some recipes online for cabbage roasted with bacon, which sounds pretty darn tasty, BUT, unfortunately, bacon and cooking in bacon grease do not fall into the healthy category (except as a flavoring ingredient). Instead, I went with a much leaner but seriously flavorful chicken apple sausage. It worked beautifully with the comfort-food vibe of the dish.The Delightful Cauliflower Cabbage and Chicken SausageI knew when I was planning it that this dish would either become a family favorite or Danny’s new most hated dish. Fortunately, it is now a new family favorite in our house, and I hope one in yours soon too!
