An easy, healthy, and delicious dinner that comes together in under thirty minutes - Chicken Sausages, Mashed Celery Root, and Broccolini.
This was one of those recipes I wasn't sure if I should even post since it is so simple. But since we eat it pretty often, I decided it was worth sharing. I almost always have chicken sausages in the house since they are one of my favorite ingredients for a quick and easy meal. Then paired with a simple low carb mash and a green veggie and you have a simple and tasty dinner. This time I opted for celery root but you could use cauliflower, turnips, rutabaga, or butternut squash. You can also substitute in almost any quick cooking vegetable. Zucchini, asparagus, sugar snap peas, kale, or spinach would all be delicious.
