GF Sausage, parsnip and apple hash with red cabbage

This is the most delicious dinner ever.  It’s free from carbs and packs a punch.  You need sausage meat, but as I’ve never seen gluten free sausage meat anywhere, I tend to use my favourite sausages and squeeze the meat out of the casings – it’s also good therapy!

To make you will need:IMG_0080

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pkt of gf sausages (400g) I use Paul Rankin
  • 300g parsnips. peeled, trimmed and cut into large chunks
  • 1 eating apple, peeled, cored and cubed
  • half a red cabbage, sliced
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp of hot chili sauce
  • 2 tbsp. chopped flat leaf parsley
  • steamed broccoli to serve


Steam or boil the parsnip chunks until they are just tender, about 10 minutes, then drain and when cool cut into smaller cubes -set asideIMG_0086

Heat one tbsp. of the olive oil in a large frying pan add the red cabbage, red onion and apple and gently cook on a low heat for 15 minutes until tender, transfer to a large bowl.IMG_0081

Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan and fry the sausage meat and parsnip together until golden brown, breaking up the sausage meat into smaller pieces.IMG_0090

Then add the cabbage mixture back to the pan, with the chili sauce, parsley and some salt and pepper to taste. Give it a good stir until it’s cooked though. Enjoy with steamed broccoli!IMG_0093
