    Bangers and celeriac mash with roast fennel and green beans

    Post by Eddie on Sun Sep 21 2014, 14:04


    Bangers and celeriac mash with roast fennel and green beans.

    Sausages are Sainsbury’s very lowcarb, ultimate outdoor bred 97% pork, at 1.2 grams of carbohydrate per 100 grams, i.e. 3 sausages 200 grams 2.4 grams of carb. Add the mashed celeriac and fennel. A very tasty meal and very lowcarb, a very easy to prepare meal.

    Peel a celeriac and cut into small chunks around an inch square, about 25mm in new money. Boil or steam for around 15 minutes. Drain off water and mash with a couple of knobs of butter. Place the sausages in a Pyrex dish and add the fennel with a little butter. Roast at 200c for around thirty minutes, turning every 10 minutes, ladle some fat over the fennel. Warm up the mashed celeriac in a micro wave for a couple of minutes. Poor over some gravy (a beef oxo cube) Voila, a great lowcarb and tasty meal. It won’t break the bank and shouldn’t raise BG numbers to an unacceptable level.

For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Can't believe it's snowing today affraid

    Think I may just consider this great winter night's meal for this evening.

    Sainsbury's at the moment have their great low carb sausages on a reduced price. Instead of £2-98 per single pack they are £2-50.

    All the best Jan

    Sounds like you could have that at any time of day - can you please ask her what veg does she use?
