Smoked Kielbasa, Cauliflower, Onions

Some times you need some thing easy. Of course, you always need something delicious. Those kielbasa that hang out in your grocer’s meat case, by the hot dogs, you know the ones you never buy? Yeah those. They are delicious. Time to give them a shot

Making them is simple, heat and eat. You could just brown them up in a skillet, serve with a little mustard and go to town. But like your mom used to tell you, you really should have a serving of vegetables with every meal.

So enter the cauliflower. Roasted till caramelized and yummy, along with an onion, a little heat, and some lemony zing, it provides a nice counterpoint to the smokey deliciousness of the sausage. Best part, is its super easy to make after a long day of work and it’s keto friendly for you dieting types.
