Sausage and Peppers
Ingredients
  • 4 Fieldroast Bratwurst Sausages⠀
  • 1/4 cup olive oil⠀
  • 3 bell peppers your color of choice, sliced⠀
  • 1/2 red onion sliced⠀
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce⠀
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste⠀
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes⠀
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano⠀
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper⠀
  • ¼ cup fresh basil chopped⠀
Instructions
  1. On a pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat, and add the sausages. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until the sausages get browned.⠀

  2. Remove the sausages from the pan, and add the sliced peppers and onions. Saute for 5-6 minutes with the oil, and then add the tomato sauce and paste.⠀

  3. Cook for another 3-4 minutes, then add the sausages back in along with the spices. Cook together for 4-5 minutes, turn off the heat, and mix in your fresh basil. Enjoy with mashed yuca!⠀

Yuca Mash
Ingredients
  • 3 pounds yuca root chopped into 3” chunks and peeled⠀
  • 1/4 cup butter, cream cheese, or ricotta cheese
  • Salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and add the yuca chunks. Boil over high heat until the yuca is very tender, for about an hour, with the lid on.

  2. Check every 20 minutes, to make sure the water hasn't dried out. If it has, add enough water to cover the yuca and continue boiling

  3. Once done, add the yucca chunks to a bowl (don't throw away the water yet!) Remove the fibrous stem from the center of the roots.

  4. Add 1/4 cup of the starchy water you cooked the yuca in, along with the butter or cheese to the same bowl, and get to mashing! You can use a pestle, potato masher, or whatever tool you like for mashing. If you want the yuca mash creamier, add more water.

  5. It'll take a few minutes, and a good arm workout! Once done, salt to taste and enjoy!
