Step one to making life super easy:

Bond with your skillet.

Skillet + Protein + Veggies. BOOM! All your food needs met.

Okay, okay, throw in something starchy and a bar of 85% dark chocolate, and THEN all your food needs met 😉

This super quick and easy vegetable and sausage skillet is incredibly adaptable and as satisfying as can be! You can use any of your favorite sausage varietals (I went with a chicken mild Italian sausage I picked up from Whole Foods) and any of your favorite vegetables.

Let’s whip it up!

Before You Start Cooking:

Place sausages on a cutting board and slice them into round pieces, about ¼-inch to ½-inch thick. Be sure you’re using pre-cooked sausages to keep the prep time minimal and to ensure the pieces of sausage stay together during the cooking process – if you use uncooked sausage, you’ll likely end up with more of a ground meat situation, which will still be delicious..just a bit messier.

Chop all of the vegetables and set aside until ready to use.

How to Make 20-Minute Vegetable and Sausage Skillet:

Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. 

Add the sliced sausage and brown for 2 to 3 minutes, or until sausage begins to get some color and a crispy char.

Add the chopped carrots, zucchini and bell pepper and stir well. Cover skillet and cook until broccoli turns bright green and carrots begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Remove the cover and stir in the parsley and sea salt. Continue cooking until vegetables reach desired done-ness, about another 5 minutes.

Serve as is or with choice of side dishes. I like eating mine over a bed of steamed rice!

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Use your favorite pre-cooked sausage. Andouille and bratwurst are awesome!
  • Replace/add/omit vegetables to your heart’s delight! Try onion, garlic, yellow squash, cauliflower, bok choy, etc.
  • Incorporate your favorite seasonings. Garlic powder, onion powder, and ground turmeric are some of my favorites.
  • Add 1 can of full-fat coconut milk to create a creamy sauce.
