Main Ingredients

3 cups diced butternut squash

1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil, divided

2 cups chicken stock

3 cups frozen cauliflower florets

1 sliced yellow onion

2 teaspoons garlic gloves

2 eggs 1/2 teaspoon greek seasoning salt like cavender's

2 cups sliced mushrooms

1 16 oz. bag frozen organic kale

2 12 oz. packs of sliced chicken sausage, preferably sweet italian or apple (be sure it's sugar free if you're on a whole 30)

1/3 cup pecan halves


1Preheat the oven to 400.

2Roast butternut squash chunks with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil for 25-30 minutes or until tender. Then reduce the oven to 350.

3Meanwhile, bring 2 cups of chicken stock to a boil. Add in cauliflower, onion and garlic, reducing to a simmer until the veggies are fork-tender. Set the aside to cool.

4Melt the remaining 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil in a large skillet. Sauté mushrooms and kale for about 10 minutes. Toss in sausage slices and stir together.

5Pour cauliflower mixture into a food processor or blender with 2 eggs and Greek seasoning salt. Blend until smooth. If the mixture appears too thick, add a little more chicken stock, white wine, or water.

6Combine sausage+veggie mixture with cauliflower sauce in a large bowl. Pour into a greased 9X13 baking dish and bake for 25 minutes.

7Place pecans on top of the casserole and bake another 10 minutes to toast pecans.
