Vegan Sausage Hotpot | Gestational Diabetes UK

A simply delicious and filling vegan sausage hotpot, perfect for warming you up on a cold day. This vegan sausage hotpot is topped with thin slices of celeriac which work perfectly as a lower-carb substitute for potatoes.

I used Richmond meat-free sausages in the recipe (which my family enjoys), but pick the vegan sausages that contain the highest protein and lowest amount of carbs possible that you enjoy best.

Vegan dishes can be particularly tricky to make low-carb and high enough in natural fats and protein. It’s for this reason that I have used celeriac to top this hotpot, rather than potato which is higher in carbs. The celeriac also gives a wonderful flavour to this hotpot.
