One Pot Turkey Sausage and Mediterranean Quinoa

You'll want to make it again and again.

If you appreciate Mediterranean flavors, you’ll love our One Pot Turkey Sausage and Mediterranean Quinoa. We’ve taken nitrate-free turkey sausage and combined it with quinoa, so it’s a healthy, nutrient-rich meal. Tomatoes and spinach add tons of vitamins, while feta cheese adds a Mediterranean flair. And since it uses just one dish, you’ll want to make it again and again.

It’s also easy to customize. For a more decidedly Mediterranean flavor, you can use turkey Italian sausage instead, and add a sprinkling of herbs like oregano or basil. The choices are endless! But whatever you do, don’t skimp on the feta. That briny flavor really gives the dish a nice salty pop!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups turkey rope sausage nitrate-free, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 yellow onion small, cut into strips

  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa rinsed in cool water
  • 2 cups spinach chopped
