Bunless Boeries

If you are trying to cut down on carbs, this delicious bunless boeries recipe will hit the spot when you crave a boerewors roll!


600 g boerewors
2 cup cocktail tomatoes — halved
3/4 red onion — finely chopped
2 tsp sweet chilli sauce
2 tsp red wine vinegar
salt and freshly ground black pepper
romaine lettuce — about 4 leaves
4 tsp wholegrain mustard
4 tsp crème fraîche
handful fresh basil


  • Cook the boerewors sausage over warm coals on the braai for 10-12 minutes until tender.
  • Combine the tomatoes, red onion, sweet chili sauce and vinegar to form a salsa. Season it with salt and pepper.
  • Trim and wash the Romaine lettuce leaves and spread a teaspoonful of mustard in each. Add a sausage portion to each leaf and top it off with the salsa.
  • Add a dollop of crème fraiche and garnish with basil leaves.

TIP: The romaine lettuce leaves can also be substituted with large butter lettuce leaves, if preferred. It is softer in texture but will still hold the boerewors and salsa.
