Author: Lauren Kelly, Certified Nutritionist
Recipe type: Main
1/3 cup couscous (I used whole wheat)
1 package turkey 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 finished. combine all together. Top with shaved parmesan if desired.
