Broccoflower with Spicy Italian Sausage

Posted on Posted in Healthy Recipes


1 lb hot Italian sausage
1 broccoflower floret (you can substitute cauliflower – but it won’t be quite as gorgeous!)
1 cup diced red bell pepper (about 1/2 a large pepper)
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley


  1. Begin heating a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. Remove the casing from the spicy Italian sausage.
  3. Brown the sausage in the pan, using a fork or spatula to break up into pieces.
  4. While the sausage is cooking, cut up the broccoflower into smaller florets, place in a 8×8 glass dish, cover with plastic wrap and heat for 4 minutes on high in the microwave. (Alternatively, you can steam the broccoflower for a few minutes making sure not to overcook.)
  5.  Place the broccoflower in a food processor and pulse until approximately the size of rice. (in multiple batches if necessary.)
  6.  Once the sausage is completely browned, add the “riced” broccoflower to the pan and stir while cooking for about 5-10 minutes.
  7. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the red bell pepper and parsley.
  8. Serve warm.
