Sausage, Kale, Sweet Potato & Quinoa


  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 12 oz. chicken apple sausage cut into bite sized circles
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 cup tri-color quinoa rinsed and drained
  • 2 ¼ cup chicken broth*
  • Salt
  • Paprika
  • 4 cups kale finely chopped


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat add 1 tablespoon of oil with the cut sausage. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until sausage is seared.
  2. Remove sausage from the skillet and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  3. Add remaining oil to the skillet with diced red onion and saute over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Stir in crushed garlic and continue cooking over medium heat for 1 minute.
  4. Push onion and garlic to one side of the skillet and add in cubed sweet potato. Cook for 5-6 minutes over medium heat, or until potatoes begin to soften. (They do not need to be completely cooked through yet!)
  5. Mix in quinoa, broth, salt, paprika, and ground sage. Bring mixture to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low.
  6. Simmer quinoa for 20-25, or until fluffy and cooked through. (add more broth if you need it!)
  7. Add sausage back to the skillet along with the chopped kale. Cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, or until sausage is heated through. Serve and enjoy!
