I grew up on pasta and seafood, a nod to our Italian-American heritage and Florida home. I never forgot a holiday meal since our plates were piled high with vegetables, noodles, and creamy sauces. Over time I taught myself how to cook, and I started sharing easy recipes here on this blog. While my cooking cannot compare to the women who came before me in my family, I do try to experiment in the kitchen every so often. Since I work at home now, I try to use fresh ingredients and pay attention to what I put into my body. I’ve lately become obsessed with easy stir fry recipes that combine a little bit of everything.
Using all natural chicken sausage, I added a few ingredients to a wok and enjoyed a healthy and filling lunch today. It’s something I’ll be repeating in the future. The sausage had a mild flavor, and it became the perfect complement to fresh steamed vegetables.
I used a wok to cook broccoli, cauliflower, and red and green peppers. I like mixing spicy flavors with garlic and olive oil, so I made sure to season the chicken with Trader Joe’s crushed garlic and a tablespoon or two of olive oil. This dish is Whole 30 compliant if you make certain that the chicken sausage is all natural!
- 1 package of all-natural apple chicken sausage
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp crushed garlic
- 1 package frozen stir-fry vegetables (or just use broccoli and cauliflower florets)
- 1 green pepper, sliced
- 1 red pepper, sliced
- In a large skillet, heat olive oil and stir-fry vegetables until tender.
- Add sausage and garlic and cook until heated through.
- Season with salt and pepper and any other seasonings as desired.
