spinach saute with chicken sausage


  • Fresh spinach
  • Pine nuts
  • Trader Joe’s chicken sausage
  • Cannellini white beans
  • Cherry or grape tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Shallots
  • Lemon

Toast about 1/3 cup pine nuts on medium heat in a skillet with no oil. Shake the skillet often to keep the pine nuts from burning. When they are a light brown color, remove from the skillet and allow to cool.

Grill chicken sausage in pan. Slice and keep warm in the oven or covered. Saute shallots and garlic in olive or grapeseed oil on low-med heat until fragrant and translucent but not browning. While this is cooking, drain and rinse one can of cannellini beans and slice tomatoes in half.

Add a half of the spinach and toss with tongs often. Remove first batch of spinach to serving dish. Add remaining spinach, cannellini beans, and tomatoes.

Add the zest of one lemon and the juice of 1/2 of the lemon to the pan. Add sea salt and ground pepper to taste. When spinach is cooked, transfer the mixture to serving dish. Add sausage and combine. Sprinkle with toasted pine nuts and serve immediately.

* Note: Measurements for ingredients vary based on preference
