Recently I was making sausage casserole for tea and Ben really didn’t fancy it so I created a sausage traybake which he loves. It is really easy to prepare and cook in 30-40 minutes.
I also think it is a great recipe as it incorporates a large number of vegetables and is full of flavour.

The importance of adding vegetables to your meals
If you follow Slimming World then you will know many vegetables are referred to as speed foods. Other diets may call these non-starchy vegetables or foods you don’t need to count. Whatever you call them this healthy sausage traybake recipe has lots!
Vegetables are low in calories compared to their density. This essentially means that they fill you up with very few calories.
The more vegetables you have in a meal either as a side dish or mixed in with the meal itself the lower-calorie the meal tends to be. A filling but low-calorie meal is perfect for weight loss.
All my recipes include vegetables where possible but do feel free to add more as an accompaniment when you can. Always choose vegetables that you enjoy because otherwise you will begrudge eating them and are more likely to before long stop cooking them at all.
Trying vegetables cooked differently or with herbs and spices can make them a little more exciting too.
Making a meal vegetarian easily
An easy way to make a meal vegetarian is to swap the meat for a vegetarian alternative such as Quorn. Other possible swaps are for jackfruit, lentils, chickpeas, mixed beans or just extra vegetables.
I have been a vegetarian since I was 10 years old and enjoy a huge variety of food so whatever you do, don’t let being vegetarian mean you need to eat a boring diet.
If you are eating healthily or following a diet like Slimming World then you may have difficulty in finding lunches for work.
This is just one of many amazing Unofficial Slimming World lunch ideas I have found so do check out my other recipes for more ideas.
If you take lunch then you are so much less likely to buy food which inevitably will be less healthy.
Taking a variety of food throughout the week to work keeps your lunchtimes interesting and stops you from getting bored.
Even if, like me, you work alone at home it can make such a difference having your food already prepared for you.
Why not give it a go and make sure you build a variety of lunches into your weekly meal plan?
