Chicken Sausage, Mushroom and Spinach Over Quinoa = A Superfood Dinner
After a long, hard day, with feeling under the weather to boot, I needed something warm and comforting for dinner. I wanted it to be healthy too, as I've been eating out a lot and last night's feast at Koliba didn't do much good for the waistline.
I decided to go for a simple, but quite delicious (and nutrient rich) dish with chicken sausage, mushrooms, fresh spinach and quinoa. Even though the recipe called for farro instead, I opted for the quinoa, as it was cheaper and provided some nice texture from the crunch of the light and dark kernels.
Getting big praises about this from Dan, he thought it was very flavorful and tasted healthful too. It did a nice job of filling us up and because I made a generous amount, we'll have it for tomorrow's lunch as well. Let the goodness continue...
