Now that we are back in the routine of school, and that white space on the calendar is shrinking, it’s nice to have a quick, simple dinner option. This sausage and rice meal is one to try. You can use whatever grain you want, depending on how much time you have. On this particular night, I had 45 minutes to cook brown rice, but you could use something like quinoa or cous cous which cook in about 15 minutes. While the grain is cooking, pour a few glugs of olive oil in a pan and slice up some onions and peppers. Heat them over medium low heat until they are soft and the onions have begun to caramelize. Then add sliced up pre-cooked sausage, turn up the heat to medium and cook until heated through. You can also add a teaspoon or two of balsamic vinegar to the sausage as it’s cooking. When the rice is done, combine it with the sausage, peppers and onions and you’re done!
