How Do You Make this Whole30 Meal Prep Recipe?

First off, collect all your ingredients, utensils and measuring equipment. Once these are gathered, let’s get started!

Add olive oil and your sausages into a large skillet and heat until your sausages are cooked through. Then add a steamer basket into a large pot. Into the steamer basket, put your chopped potatoes and place cauliflower on the top. Steam these vegetables for about 25 minutes, until they are fork-tender. Once your sausages are browned, remove from the skillet and add to your onions. 

Flavor things up with your choice of spices, for this recipe we’ve included salt and pepper. Place your thinly chopped onions into a skillet to caramelize over medium heat. Do so for about 20 minutes, until the onions are tender and sweet and the caramel color is evenly spread.

Add your remaining ingredients into your skillet with your onions, except the arrowroot and water. Heat your mixture over medium heat and bring to a low simmer. Mix the arrowroot into the water and then pour in to thicken the gravy to your desired thickness

Are your potatoes and cauliflower fork tender? Awesome. Then drain and add to a food processor bowl or mixer bowl to mash. Once mashed, season with ghee, salt, and pepper. Serve the sausages over the mashed potatoes and cauliflower with the onion gravy as your topping. Delicious!
