Sausage Skillet

This is one of my favourite quick and easy evening meals. There is a bit of a kick for those that like heat, but cool enough for the faint hearted.

This again is one of my just throw it all in and see what happens meals. Love it.

Dash of Rapeseed Oil.

2 Red Onions Chopped rough.

4 Good quality Sausages, 97% meat preferable. Chopped into chunks.

3 Garlic cloves, crushed or chopped to your liking.

1 Red and Orange Pepper, chopped in good sized chunks.

1 Courgette, Halved lengthways and then sliced in small chunks.

5 Chestnut Mushrooms, chopped in quarters.

1/2 tsp or to taste Chilli flakes. For those that like it hotter add in 1 fresh chilli.

1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning.

First get your Wok or Skillet pipping hot with the rapeseed oil, then add the onions and mushrooms.

Fry for a bit until the sausages start to turn brown.

Then add all other chopped ingredients, herbs and spices. Cook for 10 – 15 minutes until sausages are cooked through, serve and enjoy.

The Verdict

So filling, quick and easy to make. This is again one of our families favourites, Friday Fry up as we call it.

The Nerdy Bit

Well you do not have to be a rocket scientist to know that there will be a lot of good stuff in this one. You could also take out the sausages and make with Chicken or Turkey if you prefer an even healthier version.

Red Peppers :- The highest amount of Vitamin C in a bell pepper is concentrated in the red variety. In fact, they contain more than 200 percent of your daily vitamin c intake. They are also a great source of vitamin B6 and folate both of which help prevent anemia. Vitamin A, which help support healthy eyesight and as we all know by now they provide a great source of antioxidants.

Courgettes I think, are so under used, being very low in calories at only 17 calories per 100g they are a great filler for dinners. You can also do so much with them including courgetti style pasta and making courgette style lasagne sheets. They also contain no saturated fats or cholesterol. The skin on a courgette contains a great source of fibre, that could help reduce constipation.

Chestnut Mushrooms :- They contain vitamins and minerals. They are particularly rich in Copper and Vitamin B5. Low in Carbohydrates and Fat, but high in Protein.
