KETO MASHED SAVOY CABBAGE WITH SAUSAGE

This recipe takes me back to my childhood. It’s something we ate in our family during the winter and it just tastes so delicious.

Savoy cabbage is a winter vegetable and one of several cabbage varieties. It is thought to originate from England and the Netherlands. It’s packed with nutrients such as vitamin C which is beneficial for the immune system. It’s also a low carb vegetable: only 3g net carbs per 100 grams.

The original recipe is made with mashed potatoes, so I replaced them with keto friendly mashed cauliflower. Traditionally it’s eaten with sausage but you can also combine it with fish like salmon or cod.

INGREDIENTS (2 -3 portions)

  • 1/2 savoy cabbage
  • 1/2 cauliflower head
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 tbs butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbs sour cream
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 sausages

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Start by cutting the cauliflower head into florets and cook in a steamer or boiling water until soft.
  2. Cut the savoy cabbage and rinse with water.
  3. Melt 2 tbs of butter in a large pot on medium heat. Add the savoy cabbage, water, salt and pepper. Stir and let it cook for 15-20 minutes on medium-low heat.
  4. In the meantime, prepare the mashed cauliflower: in a medium sized pot melt 2 tbs of butter on medium heat and add the minced garlic. Stir, add the cauliflower and lower the heat.
  5. Mix the cauliflower with a stick blender or a food processor. (you can also use a potato masher) and add the sour cream, salt and peper.
  6. Mix the mashed cauliflower with the prepared savoy cabbage with a spoon and stir until everything is blended.
  7. Prepare the sausages in a pan on medium heat and place them on a plate. Add the mashed savoy cabbage and enjoy!

KETO MASHED CAULIFLOWER

If you miss your mashed potatoes on keto, we have the perfect substitute recipe! Again, you can make different versions of this according to your taste by adding extra herbs or spices. We like to add a pinch of paprika powder, to give it an extra special taste.

This recipe takes 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook. You will have 8 portions of mashed cauliflower

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large head cauliflower cut into florets (about 3 pounds or 1 1/2 kg)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pinch of paprika powder (the secret ingredient 😉)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place cauliflower in a steamer over a large pot of boiling water. Steam for 15 minutes until tender. Alternatively, boil cauliflower in salted water for 10 minutes or until fork tender. Remove and drain. Cover with a lid and set aside.
  2. Heat the butter over medium high heat. Sauté garlic until fragrant (about 1 minute).
  3. Blend cauliflower and garlic in a food processor on high setting until smooth. You may need to do this in batches of two or three, depending on the size of your processor.
  4. Transfer blended cauliflower into the pot with the garlic. Stir in the sour cream and season with salt, pepper and a pinch of paprika powder.
