Cauliflower Stuffing with Boerewors

We created this healthy alternative to Thanksgiving Stuffing by replacing the bread with cauliflower. What good would a stuffing recipe be without some MEAT? No good! That's why we also added protein in the form of Boerewors Sausage to devise this deliciously healthy Boerewors Cauliflower Stuffing recipe. Move over mashed potatoes, thanksgiving just got a new favorite side dish.

  • 2 large carrots; chopped

  • 2 celery stalks; thinly sliced
