Sausage, Couscous, and Vegetable Medley

I made this the other night trying to make use of some of the veggies we’ve received lately. I don’t measure ingredients, so I am estimating proportions. We liked it, hopefully someone else will too :). This recipe is adaptable, depending on the season and what you have available in your CSA share! The key is all the flavor in the sausage, but you can use pork, chicken or turkey or vegetarian sausage depending on your preference.


2-3 Sausage Links, sliced into 1 inch pieces

1 cup uncooked couscous

1 cup snap peas, ends trimmed

3-4 carrots and/or turnips or other root veggies, sliced thin

2 cloves garlic, minced

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Several tablespoons chopped cilantro

2 green onions, sliced

1/2 bunch kale or hearty greens, sliced

1/2 teaspoon EACH cumin, curry powder, dried rosemary

Dash salt and pepper (to taste)


Cook couscous according to package directions, set aside. In a large pan, brown sausage for a few minutes over med high heat, stirring occasionally. Add spices, garlic, root veggies, snap peas, and continue to cook, stirring more frequently, until sausage is cooked through and veggies are nearly done. Lower heat to medium and add greens, stirring until cooked down. Remove pan from heat and stir in lemon juice, cilantro, green onion and couscous. Serve warm.
