Sitting Down to a Meal of Garden Fresh Veggies and Grilled Chicken Sausage
As an Allrecipes Brand Ambassador, one of our September assignments is to try a few of Al Fresco's All Natural Chicken Sausage recipes found on Allrecipes.com. I chose the Garlic Chicken Sausage and Summer Vegetable Saute for tonight's dinner because I had a few bell peppers and a couple of zucchini left from this weekend's garden picking. Plus, we had piano lessons tonight and not a lot of time to prepare a big home cooked meal.
I put the chicken sausage links and zucchini on the grill, and started the onions in my wok a few minutes later. After the sausage links had browned up nicely, I brought them inside to slice diagonally and add to the onions. We are big fans of tofu, so I cubed some up and added to the saute. Tofu takes on the flavor of whatever it is cooked with, so I knew it would not only extend the well-mixed flavors, but also add a texture to replace the mushrooms, which we are not fond of. I added the peppers to the stir fry last to keep them crisp and crunchy. And, finally, I served the dish with the grilled zukes sliced up chunky-like and added to the side.
What an awesome celebration of seasonal bounty...grateful for yet another amazing recipe from Allrecipes.com. And, of course, thank you, Al Fresco!!
