Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa picked over and rinse
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 chicken sausages
  • olive oil
  • 2 sweet onions sliced thin
  • 1 red pepper sliced thin
  • 1 yellow pepper sliced thin

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the quinoa, spices, olive oil, and two cups of water to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover pan. Simmer for 15 minutes until the little ring around each quinoa loosens.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the onions and peppers in a frying pan over medium heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Cook until the vegetables are soft and starting to brown. It takes awhile - about a half an hour. Don't raise the heat too high to hurry it along, they will just burn, and that's no good!
  3. In a separate pan, brown the sausages. Drizzle a little bit of oil in the pan and cook them over medium heat until the casings are browned and crisp.
  4. To serve, put a scoop of quinoa on each plate, then add the peppers and onions and a sausage on top.
