Sausages with Broccoli and Pomegranate Quinoa

Time to talk food. I think I originally had this with chicken but we only had so much so I searched the freezer for a different option and found some good old sausages. Fried simply and then paired with the quinoa and sauerkraut. Ummmmummm! The toasted seeds take it to a whole new level so don’t do a me, eat the whole meal and realise after that, they’re still just chilling on the side in the pan…

Ingredients – serves four

Quinoa –

200g quinoa

boiling water

200g tendersteam broccoli, chopped

1 pomegranate, deseeded

1 lemon zested and juiced

1 tbsp olive oil

Sausages –

8 97% or higher meat sausages, cut into four

To serve –
