Recipe

I really debated whether or not to share this simple recipe for chicken sausage, mashed potatoes, and baby broccoli. Honestly it's not much of a recipe, more of a quick meal idea, but I make it so often I decided that it was worth it to share. It really does come in handy when you need a quick, healthy meal and don't have time to think about what to make or run to the grocery store. I always keep chicken sausage in the house since it is incredibly versatile for quick meals - usually a fresh pack in the fridge and some back-ups in the freezer. I use it all the time.

In terms of the recipe - it's really easy and quick. Start by quickly blanching the broccoli while you chop up your potatoes. One tip, the smaller you make the potatoes the quicker they will cook. Then take out the broccoli and get the cauliflower and potatoes in the boiling water. While they cook, get the sausages browned. Then just mash the potatoes and cauliflower and dinner is ready.
