Veggie sausage and roasted vegetable tray bake

Does anyone else buy stuff with a clear idea of what they’re going to cook with it, only to completely change their mind when they get home? I do it all the time. 

It is, in fact, what happened with these vegetarian sausages, which were purchased with the intention of making a simple & ordinary sausage-mash-and-gravy dinner. But then, I got home, and saw what else was kicking around in the fridge, and all my plans changed. 

I haven’t done a tray bake for ages, but it’s a brilliant way to make dinner with a minimal amount of washing up – everything goes on the one tray! I started this off on the stove, so as to ensure the sausages were browned and the onions were softened to start with, but after that I just shoved the whole lot in the oven and relaxed for half an hour.

Well, I say relaxed, obviously I still had to cook some rice, clear the table, set the table, change over the laundry, prevent Kipper from destroying the kitchen, wash up the chopping board, knife etc, wash up Kipper’s lunch box, organise the fruit bowl, sort out the recycling… and then it was time to eat. Thank goodness!

We had this with rice, but mostly because DH is a diabetic and needs to have some carbohydrates with his meal. If it had just been me and Kipper, I probably would have just stuck to sausages and veg. It would also go well with potatoes and possibly even some pasta with a little olive oil. The vegetables are packed with flavour from roasting, and the sausages are crispy and savoury, so you really don’t need anything fussy alongside.

I did 8 sausages between the 3 of us, but I suggest you adjust the amount depending on the appetites of your diners. We eat tons of veg so this amount would probably serve 3-4 ‘normal’ vegetable eaters ๐Ÿ™‚

Served 2 adults and a littl’un. Yum yum yum.

Veggie sausage and roasted vegetable tray bake

I’m entering this recipe into a couple of foodie challenges. Firstly, since it’s absolutely packed with yummy vegetables, it has to be a contender for Extra Veg, hosted by Michelle at Utterly Scrummy and co-organised by Helen at  Fuss Free Flavours.
Secondly, Family Foodies, organised by Eat Your Veg and Bangers & Mash, which is looking for โ€œhealthier child-friendly recipesโ€, a category into which this definitely fits.
