Grilled Veggies & Chicken Sausage Sliders

Ingredients:
  • 1 package of flavored chicken sausage of your choice (Applegate has a wide variety of organic/natural options)
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 Vidalia onion
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 handful of feta cheese
  • extra virgin olive oil (for coating vegetables and pan)
  • balsamic vinegar (for drizzing)
  • multi-grain baguette
Instructions:

Slice the vegetables so that you are able to grill and turn without losing them through the grates (roasting is an alternative option when the weather doesn’t allow for grilling – 400 degrees, 20 min or so).

Toss veggies in olive oil, sprinkle sea salt and pepper. Grill for a 10-12 minutes on each side (turning once) or until skin is slightly charred. Meanwhile, cut sausage in half (lengthwise) and grill as well (they should only take a few minutes on either side – test one piece by cutting in half and ensuring no red juices flow when compressed). Remove from grill and cover with foil.

In a saucepan add a small amount of olive oil and quickly sauté spinach until just wilted (shouldn’t take more than 2 minutes).

Slice baguette, layer spinach, veggies, sausage, sprinkle some feta, drizzle with balsamic and enjoy!

Tips:

Enjoy veggies and protein over rice, pasta or over some fresh greens!
The wider array of vegetable colors you use, the greater the phytonutrients you are getting!
