How about a healthy, easy one-dish meal?
You came to the right place 🙂 All three of my kids ate this (well my two year old and MOST of it). It is packed with flavor, vegetables, fiber and protein. Oh and it’s super colorful and pretty too!
See I told you it was pretty!!
Couscous with Baby Spinach Peppers Tomatoes and Grilled Chicken Sausage
1/3 cup couscous (I used whole wheat)
1 package chicken sausage
2 cups of organic baby spinach
1/2 pint organic cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1 organic yellow pepper, cut in 1 inch cubes
1/4 cup vegetable broth
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 tsp grapeseed oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
pepper to taste
1/2 tsp oregano
fresh basil, torn (use as much depending on your taste)
- Cook couscous according to instructions. I always omit butter or oil if it calls for it and use just plain water
- Grill sausage in a grill pan or on the grill
- In a saucepan place oil and garlic and saute on medium heat for 1-2 minutes until garlic softens. Add spinach, peppers and tomatoes and cook for 3-4 minutes until vegetables are tender. Add vegetable broth salt, pepper, basil and oregano and move to low heat and let simmer for a few more minutes.
- Once sausage and couscous are fisnihed. combine all together. Top with shaved parmesan if desired. Makes 4 servings. ENJOY!
