Recipe: Sausage & Sweet Potatoes (gluten-free/dairy-free/paleo)


My family went NUTS over this recipe last night, and kept praising it for a couple hours after we'd finished eating. Bonus: it's paleo-friendly and naturally gluten-free!

I found this at PaleoBlocks, who modified it from Gluten-Free Goddess. It's originally a stuffed cabbage recipe, but I didn't mess with the cabbage - we just ate the "filling". My modified version below.

Sausage & Sweet Potatoes


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, diced
  • 1 red onion, peeled, diced
  • 1 large tart apple, such as Granny Smith, peeled, diced [I think I used Gala or Pink Lady]
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 sausages- these can be sweet Italian, chicken apple, turkey, buffalo, cut into chunks [I used Al Fresco Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage]
  • Extra virgin olive oil, as needed
  • 1 cup organic 100% apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • Sprinkle of sea salt, cinnamon, nutmeg [I used pumpkin pie spice]


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Throw the vegetables, apple, and sausage into a roasting pan and drizzle with a little olive oil. 
  3. Add the apple juice, maple syrup, salt and spices and toss well to coat. 
  4. Roast in the oven till soft- about 40 to 50 minutes. Stir a few times during roasting to distribute the sauce and seasoning.
  5. Serve & sit back and wait for the accolades.

We tried the Sweet Potatoes and Sausage and my 10 yo ds dubbed it "HAPPY SOUP". He declared we should eat it on his "happy day", which is Wednesday.
Thanks for the recipe, and keep em coming!
I ordered your Book of Me for a Stacy Julian online scrapbooking class called TWELVE. "Me" is one of the twelve topics we explore monthly, and your book has given me ideas where there would have been none.


Pinned it and Ziplisted it and have the ingredients on my shopping list!
