One of my favorite (and more resent) discoveries is quinoa. A high protein and fiber grain, it makes wonderful vegetarian dishes but is also wonderful in the following recipe my husband & I created. Plus, if you have a grocery store with a bulk bin you save on cost and wasted packaging.
Organic Quinoa ( ratio of 1 cup to 2cups water; more or less depending on family size)
Spicy Chicken Sausage (we use two to three links sliced into rounds)
Cook quinoa in separate pot. Put a little oil with the garlic and onion and saute until tender and fragrant. Add zucchini, cook until tender but not mushy. Set aside. In same pan, heat sausage rounds. Drain quinoa and in a large bowl combine with veggie and sausage. Season to taste with salt & pepper and enjoy!
This is a great seasonally dish...just switch the veggie (think asparagus, sweet potato, the sky is the limits!)
