Sausage and mash is one of the best comfort foods ever however traditionally this is served with onion gravy, which is a big ‘no-no’ for me as onions cause me IBS problems. I avoid them and don’t have them, no onion powder in my diet to remain IBS free, comfortable and confident in my body.
This recipe however, works well for me and is given a healthy twist with all the delicious additional greens and no need for gravy.
Rich in protein, vitamins A through to K, energy giving simple and starchy carbs and this meal feels like a proper treat. The real depends on the quality of your sausages. Over processed main stream sausages need not apply!
IBS Friendly Sausage & Mash
Wash and chop (don't peel) the potatoes into small chunks and boil for 10 minutes with the majority of the fresh mint. Smells amazing!
Put the sausages in a roasting dish in the oven (or in an air fryer) for around 10 minutes on high temp until cooked through.
Chop the courgette into chunky slices and place this, the broccoli and the peas into a steamer. Steam for 10 minutes.
Once the potatoes are cooked through, drain, add the butter and rough mash for a textured, tasty mash with all the good stuff, skin included.
Serve the sausages, greens and mash with a pinch of crushed black pepper for extra anti-oxidants and enjoy your healthier version of an old favourite!
