Chicken Sausage, Onions and Sweet Peppers on a Quinoa
The new year comes and I am sure we are all making promises to be good, watch what we eat, save money....etc..
I too, have reached a point where I need to try to watch what I am eating and feeding the family. A great little grain, that I have been guilty of buying and forgetting I have it. Today I brought it out of the pantry. I cook it in my rice cooker. I have another post on Quinoa and the rice cooker.
When it was just about finished I began to think what would be tasty with it. I had a package of chicken sausage and that was just the thing. I can cook these up with peppers and onions and a tbs of olive oil and it will give it a little sauce to mix in the quinoa.
Chicken Sausage, Onions, and Sweet Peppers on Quinoa serves 2
(I actually thought I could eat it all, but with the quinoa I could only go half way. So I shared it with my husband)
****did the numbers with the ww points plus and it came to 8
2 chicken sausages (cut up)
1/2 onion medium dice
4 small sweet peppers (or how you like)
1 tbs of olive oil
seasoning : I just used a little garlic salt, you could use hot pepper to really amp it up
1) Put peppers and onions in the sautee pan with olive oil. Give them just a minute to soften, push to side of pan to continue cooking.
2) Place in cut up sausage, I kinda get them where they are all laying down, so I can get them kinda crispy brown. Continuing stirring veggies and then mix all together.
3) Place a bed of Quinoa on a plate and pour out half on top.
Easy Peasy and quick.
A great thing is to cook double the quinoa and then you can use it again in something else.
This made a nice lunch and it was really filling the quinoa is a protein and that really keeps me away from the sugars and carbs.
So happy to see WVa getting their water back and hopefully life can get back to normal.
I will be trying to cook a few more things every week. If you ever have an idea or a question I always love to be challenged. I can just about make nothing from nothing.
Wishing the winter would move on out. I want to start a garden and get my tomatoes in and basil. I just love fresh flavors..
So get out there make this yours, change the flavors, add some more.. eat it all...
