Italian Sausage and Quinoa One Dish Meal

Quinoa is not really in the Paleo lifestyle, but it’s probably the least offensive of the “grain/seed” that is not in the diet. But I had some organic quinoa and some sweet italian sausage from my favorite meat market (homemade, not processed) that I wanted to use. I found this recipe, and made it last night. It was so good. If you still eat quinoa, and want more recipes, this recipe came from The Quinoa Cookbook: Nutrition Facts, Cooking Tips, and 116 Superfood Recipes for a Healthy Diet.

I made the full recipe, froze half for later and I have lunch and dinner for a couple of days this week. It is really good.

In the cookbook this is supposed to be a soup, but it's not liquidy. It's, to me, a one dish meal.

Instructions
Prepare the quinoa
  1. Bring chicken stock to a boil, then stir in the quinoa. Return to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until the quinoa is tender, 30 minutes. Let rest for five minutes, fluff with a fork, then set aside.
Prepare the dish
  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil (I used coconut oil) until hot but not smoking, then add sausage and cook until brown. Set aside
  2. In the same pot, add the garlic, and onions and cook until golden, about five minutes. Add the carrots, thyme and oregano and cook for five additional minutes.
  3. Add the tomato sauce, and stock to the pot, raise heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add the quinoa, sausage, and greens (consider kale, spinach or collard greens) and cook for 40 minutes.
