Sausage and Cauliflower Casserole
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
8 oz. Italian sausage, casings removed
1 medium yellow onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
4 sprigs thyme
1 28-oz. can whole peeled tomatoes
1/2 cup almond flour
2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
Bring a pot of water to boil. Add the cauliflower florets to the pot and boil for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse the florets with cold water. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook for 8-10 minutes until browned, using a spoon to break into small pieces. Stir in the onion, garlic, and thyme. Sauté for 5-7 minutes, stirring regularly. Add the tomatoes and juices to the pan and cook for 5 minutes more. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Remove the skillet from heat and carefully stir in the cauliflower. Transfer the mixture to a 9×13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with almond flour. Bake for 20 minutes, and then turn the oven to broil and cook an additional 3-5 minutes. Garnish with parsley to serve.
