Hubby whipped up this side dish on the fly today and it was so beautiful that I had to take some photos– look at those colors! This is such a simple recipe, yet the end result is bursting with flavor!
You only need four ingredients:
- 1 sweet yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1lb mild Italian sausage
- 3 cups chopped baby spinach
STEP 1: Sauté onions (we use coconut oil) in large skillet on medium heat for about five minutes until they start to caramelize.
STEP 2: Add bell pepper and continue to sauté until the pepper slices soften.
STEP 3: Add sausage; use wooden spoon or spatula to chop in pan. (Optional: add a splash of Mirin, Japanese cooking wine, for a touch of sweetness.)
STEP 4: Once sausage is fully cooked, remove pan from heat. Add spinach and stir into cooked ingredients. The steam alone will lightly wilt the spinach to the perfect consistency.
This easy side is as delicious as it is beautiful– we will definitely be adding it to our regular rotation!
**BONUS: You could even serve with a fried egg for a hearty and healthy breakfast option.
