One Pot Stew 1

  • 1 lb Italian sausage, mild
  • 1/2 cup Celery
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1/4 cup Onion
  • 1 cup Spinach, fresh
  • 1/2 cup Quinoa
  • 1 pinch Paprika
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • Optional – 1/4 pound smoked pepper bacon (GF Option – use a gluten-free brand)

The first step is to cook a link of sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. Personally, I use certified gluten-free meats, but feel free to choose your favorite brand.

Cook the sausage for approximately 15 minutes, turning occasionally until it is fully cooked and nice and brown on both sides. *If you are adding smoked peppered bacon to your recipe then cook it along with the sausage. 

Chop up your onion, garlic, spinach, and celery while the sausage is cooking. 

Once the sausage is done, remove it from the skillet and place it onto a cutting board.
