Recipe Features:

  • A clean chicken apple sausage
  • Crisp-tender vegetables
  • It is low carb from the cauliflower rice, but you can substitute quinoa or brown rice if desired

This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free as well. And, if you can eat eggs, you can serve a fried or scrambled egg on top…and I love it with a dash of hot sauce as well. Tell me, who can’t get behind that?!? 😉

Ingredient Notes For This One Skillet-Sausage And Veggies With Cauliflower Rice:

  • Sausage – The brand I love and use is by Charcutnuvo. I like to use the organic chicken apple sausage for this recipe. It contains clean ingredients, tastes delicious and you can feel good about eating it.
  • Veggies – If you can, try to buy all organic, especially when it comes to the bell peppers, squash and zucchini because they are on the Dirty Dozen list.
  • Cauliflower Rice – I use fresh rice as much as possible, but frozen will work here as well. If you do use fresh, it will require less cook time. So just be sure to not overcook it or it will get mushy.
  • Herbs – This meal can be eaten with or without fresh herbs. The herbs just liven it up a bit more. So, if you want to add herbs, feel free to try fresh cilantro, chives or parsley.

  1. Great quick and healthy meal. I actually like to make this up and put it in the fridge at the beginning of the week. I’ll heat some up each morning and put a couple of fried eggs over it!
