Wish Upon A Dish: Spicy Turkey Sausage with Black-eyed Peas and Spinach

Spicy Turkey Sausage with Black-eyed Peas and Spinach

This week after keeping a food diary, I found out I was really lacking in iron.

Here I thought taking a Centrum everyday would cover all the bases but not iron or calcium.

I have decided to add spinach into a recipe where ever it would go well. I buy one of those HUGE plastic clams loaded with baby spinach and just drop it into a dish.

Feel free to use any sausage you like but I chose a Hillshire Farms Turkey Kiebasa.

Spicy Turkey Sausage With Black-Eyed Peas and Spinach
Serves 4

* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 1 pound turkey kielbasa, sliced
* 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
* 10 ounce baby spinach
* 1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes
* 1 can (15 oz.) black-eyed peas, drained
* 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
* 1/4 teaspoon paprika
* 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add sausage. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate, then add remaining ingredients to pan and simmer about 10 minutes. Return sausage to pan and serve over cooked brown rice, bulgur or quinoa if you like.
