We returned last night from a great weekend in Chicago. The kids had so much fun playing with Grandma and Grandpa, and B and I really got to relax and enjoy the company of family. We celebrated a beautiful couple’s marriage and enjoyed some top notch Chicago-style pizza at the reception. It was so much fun.
My in-laws spoil us with great food whenever we visit them. It was really nice not to be the main chef for a few days. But, I must say, I missed cooking! I really love to cook and create so, the reprieve was lovely, and now I’m ready to get back at it! We ate through our fridge before leaving so today I stocked up, primarily with veggies and meat. I spotted some broccolini at the Coop and decided that would be the perfect veggie for lunch today! I paired it with a sweet potato and some andouille sausage and, oh man, it was delicious. I actually finished it about 2 minutes ago and I’m trying to tell myself I made enough for two people, although I would really like another helping. We’ll see how this goes….
One Pan Broccolini & Sausage
25 min, serves 2
2 T olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped small
4 broccolini, chopped into 1-2” pieces. (I like mine bigger because it’s so pretty)
2 andouille sausages, cut into circles
1 T coconut aminos
salt and pepper to taste
1. Heat olive oil in skillet on medium heat.
2. Add onion and sweet potato and cook for about 15 minutes with a lid on, stirring frequently, until sweet potatoes are softened. Add a little more olive oil, if necessary.
3. Add broccolini, sausage, and coconut aminos, cover, and continue to cook for about 6 more minutes, or until broccolini has softened.
4. Season with salt and pepper, to taste
