Taste & Texture
This sausage stir fry has an Asian inspired flavor. It is bursting with fresh veggies and hearty sausage links.
The sausage is crispy whereas the veggies are soft and tender. The coconut aminos is relatively thin, but can be thickened with extra cooking time. Additionally, add in a drizzle of honey (not Whole30) to help thicken the sauce.
How to Make
First, add olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Once the olive oil is hot, add in sliced sausage links.
Cook sausage for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Then remove sausage to a plate.
Add minced garlic, broccoli florets and sliced carrots to the skillet over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil if needed.
Meanwhile, add cauliflower rice and a drizzle of olive oil to a separate skillet over low heat. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until warmed through. Stir occasionally.
Cook veggies for 10 to 12 minutes or until carrots have softened, stirring occasionally. Add sausage back into skillet.
Next, pour in coconut aminos. Bring to a light boil. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
Finally, serve sausage and veggies over cauliflower rice.

Cook the veggies until completely tender. Depending on the size of the veggies, this could take slightly longer than the 10 to 12 minutes listed.
