Couscous with Baby Spinach, Yellow Peppers, Cherry Tomatoes and Grilled Turkey Sausage - A Guest Post from Lauren Kelly, Certified Nutritionist
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4
  • ⅓ cup couscous (I used whole wheat)
  • 1 package turkey sausage
  • 2 cups of organic baby spinach
  • ½ pint organic cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 organic yellow pepper, cut in 1 inch cubes
  • ¼ cup vegetable broth
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • ¼ tsp grapeseed oil
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • pepper to taste
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • fresh basil, torn (use as much depending on your taste)
  1. Cook couscous according to instructions. I always omit butter or oil if it calls for it and use just plain water.
  2. Grill sausage in a grill pan or on the grill.
  3. 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.
  4. Once sausage and couscous are finished. combine all together. Top with shaved parmesan if desired.
