This recipe is just as easy and healthy as it looks. This is one of my favourite suppers to make for meal prep when I want a healthy option that doesn't make me feel sluggish after. It's perfect for a summertime family supper, especially for a busy night of activities afterward.
I like to throw all the vegetables that I found on sale at the grocery store, some sausage, and sometimes even shrimp with a bit of sauce and spices.
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 40-45 min
1 coil of farmer sausage
1 bell pepper, sliced
1 handful of asparagus sprigs (approx. 15 sprigs), cut into bite-sized pieces
1 medium sweet potato, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
10 mushrooms, quartered
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp seasoning salt
2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1 tbsp oil
1/4 cup oyster sauce
2 tbsp hot sauce
1 tbsp chili oil (see notes, can be swapped for sweet chilli sauce, teriyaki, or honey garlic)
1 tbsp honey
Preheat oven to 375. Combine the garlic powder, seasoning salt, pepper, chilli powder, paprika, cayenne, and thyme in a small bowl. Cut the sweet potatoes and coat in oil and a quarter of the seasoning. Put in the oven and cook for 10 minutes.
While the potatoes start the cook, cut the sausage into bite-size pieces. Mix up half of the remaining seasoning with the last 4 ingredients. Toss with the cut up sausage in a bowl. Add to the pan once the potatoes have cooked for 10 minutes. Return to the oven.
Meanwhile, cut up the remaining vegetables and coat in 1/2 tbsp oil and the remaining seasoning. After the sausage has been in the oven for 10 minutes, add the remaining vegetables to the pan and stir in. Bake for 20-25 more minutes, until the potatoes and sausage are fully cooked.
Serve immediately or store in the fridge for 3-4 days.
Chilli Oil: 1/2 cup oil and 1 tbsp red pepper flakes. I like to make extra and keep a jar of this on hand for dishes that need a little extra spice.
You can cook rice or quinoa to serve as a bed for this dish. I didn't do it this time but it goes well together!
The oyster sauce can be swapped for barbecue sauce if that's not something you usually have laying around.
Like I said, I sometimes also add shrimp, just make a bit more sauce and toss it in that. Add to the pan enough to warm if already cooked and if not, add to the pan 9-13 minutes before taking the whole pan out. Cook until the shrimp is pink.
I started making this recipe a couple years ago in my first year of university. I don't know where I got the idea but that's when I start meal prepping every week and was looking for those super easy and healthy that made my busy weeks with school and work a bit less busy. I can't really explain why I decided to combine oyster sauce and Mexican spices together...some kind of weird university student concoction. but trust me, its good!
