Sausage & Spinach Over Rice: A 15-Minute Dinner Kids Love
Serve over brown rice, cous cous or quinoa.
- Cook Time: 15 mins
- Total Time: 15 mins
- 3/4 pound sweet sausage (casings removed — just squeeze them off)
- 1 10-ounce bag chopped frozen spinach
- 1/2 cup beef or chicken stock
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- Handful of golden raisins (or regular raisins or dried cranberries)
- Handful of slivered almonds (or pine nuts or walnuts)
- Juice of one lemon
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a large saute pan, cook the sausage until it’s no longer pink.
- Add the frozen spinach and use your spoon to break it up a little, stirring for a few minutes until it starts to cook down into the sausage.
- When the spinach has thawed, add the stock and basil. Bring to a quick boil for about 1 minute.
- It’s DONE. Serving suggestions: Add the raisins, almonds and lemon juice OR bring all that to the table and let each person doctor up his or her own plate. (Always a winner around here.)
