Roasted Squash & Sausage with Greens, Mustard & Kraut
PREHEAT OVEN to 400F | 200C. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
WASH squash, cut it in half and then cut a quarter, scoop out the seeds and cut into thin wedges, leave the skin on.
PLACE squash wedges + sausages on the sheet pan, pick the sausages with a fork a few times to allow any fat to drain and to stop the skin from splitting during cooking. Spread out in a single layer. You can rub the squash wedges with oil, liquid aminos or soy sauce.
ROAST 20 mins. Turn sausages and squash over so they brown evenly. Roast another 10mins until the squash is fork tender and the sausages are completely cooked all the way through. Remove from the oven and rest for 5 mins
PLATE salad leaves, and add squash wedges. Slice sausages on the diagonal and plate. Scatter over pumpkin seeds and kraut | pickles if using. Drizzle over a bit of mustard or serve on the side.
