One Pan Sausage & Vegetables

As life has become the busiest its ever been, I appreciate one-pan meals more and more! I love cracking open my favorite cookbook and going to town on a fun recipe as much as anyone else, but sometimes the cleanup and cooking are a bit too much more than I’m willing to handle. With my job, my kitchen is basically always a wreck, to begin with… why mess it up even more and create more work for myself?

This easy one-pan sausage and vegetables dish is made on one pan and features a delicious combination of savory sausage and crispy, flavorful vegetables! It’s an amazing fall meal, but really, it’s a great dinner option any day that you’re wanting something delicious but with less work.

 

The Ingredients for the One Pan Sausage & Vegetables

  • Sausage. Something like a smoke sausage would work, but I used this bratwurst from Niman ranch for a nightshade-free option.
  • Carrots
  • Brussel Sprouts – Roasted brussel sprouts are some of the best things you’ll ever eat… seriously!
  • Broccoli
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Onion
  • Garlic
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Avocado Oil
  • Parsley – to top it all off!

 

How to Make One-Pan Sausage & Vegetables

  • Preheat oven: Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine & transfer: Add the vegetables and sausage to the baking pan, and top with avocado oil and season. Toss and make sure that everything is laying flat and nothing is overlapping so the vegetables and sausage can evenly roast. Transfer to the oven and roast for 35-45 minutes, turning halfway through, until the vegetables are cooked to your liking.
  • Finish & serve: Remove from the oven and serve topped with chopped parsley.

Can you make this recipe AIP?

I have yet to find a storebought sausage that’s AIP compliant, but I like to use this bratwurst from Niman ranch for an option that’s nightshade-free. It’s not totally AIP, but if you have some reintroductions it’s a great option. However, if you have a local source where you can buy AIP sausage, that would totally work for this recipe. You would also omit the black pepper for AIP!

Can you make this one the stove in a skillet instead?

Technically, yes!  Vegetables like the Brussel sprouts are better roasted, but you can still use a skillet to cook the sausage and the rest of the vegetables.

What other vegetables can you use?

This meal is super flexible with what vegetables you use! Here are a few ideas for some other vegetables that you can use…

  • Bell peppers
  • Red onion
  • Sweet potato
  • Cabbage
  • etc!
