There are some nights when I just want something that is bright, colorful, and chock full of delicious vegetables. This was one of those beautiful accidents that came about from a late night craving. One of those, what do I have? Let’s throw it all in the same skillet, and hope it tastes good kind of accidents. Well, it did (taste good)! And I have made it several times since, so I figured I better share it with you.
One of the things I really love about this meal is that it does not really require any special ingredients. I used onions, carrots, zucchini, mini squash, french green beans, corn, mushrooms, sausage, and brown rice. But if you have other vegetables, or hate one of the ones I used, just leave it out. It will likely still taste great.
I just ate a big bite of Strawberry Cheesecake Tart, so now my body is telling me it is time for something healthy, and my mouth is literally starting to water as I type this, so I may just be having this for dinner tonight! I hope you will join me. Use whatever fresh veggies you have, and rejoice in the fact that this is a one skillet meal. Almost no mess.
The sausage adds a lot of flavor, so if you are leaving the sausage out, you may want to add in a little extra seasoning. I like to add in some spicy sausage because I love the kick. Ground beef works, but doesn’t offer as much flavor. Keep that in mind.
