Recipe: Sausages with Vegetables

A really classic recipe that’s so simple it almost doesn’t need a recipe. You can use any type of sausage from tofu to 8 types of meat all shoved together and the vegetables are also pretty flexible as long as you add them to the pan in the right order and cut them to roughly the same size you’ll get this great centerpiece of a meal.

  3. Add the potatoes and carrots to the pan and cook another 5-6 minutes
  4. Add the snap peas, green peas, and tomatoes with a little salt and a small amount of water to coat the bottom of the pan and cook until all the vegetables are soft, about 8-10 minutes.
  5. Turn the heat off and add the sausage back either whole or cut up, allow to mix together, add seasoning to taste, and serve hot.
Notes
