Spicy Sausage with Chard, Kale, Green Beans

These are Pork Bratwurst Sausages (without nitrates, without MSG) made fresh, from Sprouts Farmers Market. Once in a while, look out for their 72-hr sale (usually happens Friday, Saturday, Sunday ) in Sprouts Farmers Market  - and that is about the only time I buy their sausages (usually $2.99/lb vs $1.99/lb during the sale). Of course, the sausages don't look like what you are seeing in the photos (below) when sold in their stores. That is just what I usually do when I cook them - break them up into smaller bits and pieces and stir-fry them with vegetables such as kale or chard.


Serve as a side with rice, or toss into cooked pasta to make a one-dish meal. You can also fill up a hot-dog bun (a twist from this Chicken and Kale Hot Dog) or create a pita-bread veggie-meat wrap.



Spicy Sausage with Chard, Kale, Green Beans 
In a hot pan, break up 1 sausage (about 0.8lb of ground meat) into small bits. It will take about 12-15mins to cook the sausages. When lightly browned and cooked, add in the veggies and they will cook in no time. The green beans may take longer time to cook then chard/kale, so add then first. After about 8-10 minutes, add the leafy greens. Notice I did not add any more flavorings as the flavors from the store-bought sausage is sufficient for this dish to work out.
