Spinach & Feta Chicken Sausage with Berry Drizzle Broccoli & Cauliflower

Looking for a super simple summer meal?  This is it!  It's only got four ingredients and comes together in about 15 minutes total.

Busy people trying to eat healthy *and* yummy meals have to take advantage of any and all appropriate shortcuts, such as stocking up on great premade items like flavored sausages.  I found these chicken sausages filled with spinach and feta cheese at Whole Foods.  Wowsa!  They are gooood!!  Even better, they're only 140 calories and 1 gram of carbs each.  Cook 'em on the George Foreman Grill to make the flavors pop!

Another tip for making your tastebuds tingle is to use high-quality accent foods.  The broccoli and cauliflower are lightly grilled and modestly seasoned with garlic salt.  Add a drizzle of artisan berry jam, though, and you've got a gourmet side that didn't take a culinary school degree to create.

  • 1 chicken sausage stuffed with spinach and feta cheese
  • Chopped broccoli, about a 1/2 cup
  • Chopped cauliflower, about a 1/2 cup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons berry jam
  • Preheat a George Foreman Grill (or sauté pan).
  • Slice sausage in half lengthwise.
  • Place sausage and vegetables on grill (or in sauté pan) and heat until cooked through.
  • Warm jam in microwave for about 15 seconds.
  • Sprinkle vegetables with garlic salt and drizzle with jam.
