Bangers and celeriac mash

Bangers and celeriac mash with roast fennel and green beans.

Sausages are Sainsbury’s very lowcarb, ultimate outdoor bred 97% pork, at 1.2 grams of carbohydrate per 100 grams, i.e. 3 sausages 200 grams 2.4 grams of carb. Add the mashed celeriac, fresh green beans and fennel. A very tasty meal and very lowcarb, a very easy to prepare meal.

Peel a celeriac and cut into small chunks around an inch square, about 25mm in new money. Boil or steam for around 15 minutes. Drain off water and mash with a couple of knobs of butter. Place the sausages in a Pyrex dish and add the fennel with a little butter. Roast at 200 c for around thirty minutes, turning every 10 minutes, ladle some fat over the fennel. Warm up the mashed celeriac in a micro wave for a couple of minutes. Pour over some gravy (a beef oxo cube) Voila, a great lowcarb and tasty meal. It won’t break the bank and shouldn’t raise BG numbers to an unacceptable level.

Found this blog, didn't realise fresh low carb food could look and taste so delicious. It's so much healthier than many of the ready meals that you can buy. I do check out the carb count and there are a few ready meals that are not too bad. The less carbs/sugar/starch is surely the way to go.

Thanks for all the recipe and food ideas.

Celeriac is also called turnip-rooted celery or knob celery.

You can also make mash from mashed cauliflower and carrots.
