This is one of those quick and easy meals I keep in my back pocket when I’m short on time. It’s healthy, hearty, kid-approved, and excellent for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
Quick & Healthy Meal in Under 30 – Sausage & Veggies:
Yields 3 adult sized servings, or 2 adult & 2 kid-sized servings
12 ounces nitrate free chicken or beef sausages, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil, coconut oil, or ghee
1 bunch asparagus, woody ends removed & cut into 1 inch pieces
6 ounces sweet mini peppers, sliced
½ cup sliced onion
sea salt & fresh ground pepper to taste
- In a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, cook the sausages until they start to brown and are heated through. Place the sausages on a plate and cover with foil.
- In the same skillet, warm the desired fat and then add the asparagus, mini peppers, and onion. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and cook until the veggies start to soften, but are still crisp. This should take no more than 4-6 minutes.
- Place the sausages back in the pan with the veggies and toss to combine. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
Megan’s Recipe Notes:
If asparagus isn’t affordable or available, you can substitute 3-4 cups of frozen green beans. This is a really versatile dish. Don’t be afraid to bulk it up with more veggies to serve more people.
