Easy Sausage Quinoa Toss

Why is this called "toss"?  Well because you make the quinoa and cook the sausage and squash and toss it all together of course.  And because I couldn't come up with a better name.  Feel free to suggest one.  lol  We've been enjoying this gluten-free, dairy-free lunch lately.  It is simple to make and filling.

Why do I always remember to snap a photo after the bowl is half eaten? 

This is the sausage we use.  Its from Costco, but Meijer also sells a similar kind.

Easy Sausage Quinoa Toss
Makes 2-3 bowls full. 

1 cup quinoa
2 cups chicken broth

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes until water is absorbed.

1 small onion, diced
2 small summer squash, diced
2 chicken sausage, sliced

Stir fry onion in oil.  After a few minutes, add the sausage and squash.  Cook until squash is tender and sausage is starting to brown.  Simple and tasty!


  1. I recognized those items from Costco! Thank you for the lunch idea. Lately, our new favorite lunch is black beans and brown rice mixed or "tossed" together.
