  • FOR THE SAUCE
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 5 - 6 cloves of garlic , minced
  • 3 tomatoes , chopped
  • 1 head cauliflower , washed and chopped into pieces
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • couple chili flakes (optional) (I like them!)
  • Salt and Pepper to tasteFOR THE ZOODLES
  • 1 good-sized zucchini per person
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt per zucchini
  • 1 tsp olive oil per zucchiniFOR THE DISH
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 ring farmer sausage , raw or cooked, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 - 1 onion , chopped
  • 1- 2 tomatoes , chopped
  • 2 cups green beans , cut into bite sized pieces

Instructions

  1. FOR THE SAUCE
  2. In a big pot, heat the oil on medium.
  3. Add the onions and saute for a couple mins till they start to get soft. Add the garlic and saute for 1 min. Add the chili flakes if you like.
  4. Add the tomatoes and stir them for a couple mins. Then add the cauliflower and the broth and bring to a boil.
  5. Cover and simmer the sauce till all the vegetables are very soft. Remove from heat.
  6. Puree the mixture. You can use an immersion blender, an upright blender, a magic bullet... whatever you have. Just make sure that you get all the lumps out of the sauce.
  7. Pour it back into the pot and season with salt and pepper to taste.
    FOR THE ZOODLES
  8. Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  9. Use the sprialiazer to make noodles out of your zucchini
  10. Lay them on a paper towel lined cookie sheet and sprinkle with Sea Salt and top with another layer of paper towels.
  11. Throw them in the oven for about 15 mins. When you take them out, blot them with the paper towel to get rid of excess moisture.
  12. Toss them in olive oil or coconut oil. (This will prevent them from getting soggy)
    FOR THE DISH
  13. Heat the olive oil in a pan on medium heat.
  14. Add the farmer sausage (if its raw) and the onion and saute for a few mins.
  15. Add the green beans and tomatoes and stir for a couple mins. Then add the farmer sausage if you have pre-cooked farmer sausage.
  16. Pour in the cauliflower sauce and stir well.
  17. Then you can either put some zoodles on a plate and pour the sauce on top, or you can add the zoodles to the sauce first and then serve. Up to you.
  18. Top each plate with parmesan cheese if you like (we do!) and serve!
