A quick, wholesome, delicious dinner using Trader Joes Sweet Apple Chicken Sausages

Whenever I am in the mood for something quick yet healthy and wholesome; Trader Joes sausages are my go-to. I got home from work trying to figure out what to make for dinner and this was absolutely perfect. All you need:

...well, this a a few more ingredients.

-Garlic & Onions to taste
-Oregano and curry powder (or any other kind of seasonings you may have around)
-Coconut oil (you can substitute w/ olive oil or oil-spray)
-1 chicken sausage per person
-Slices mushrooms
-Broccoli & mixed veggies

Heat up some coconut oil in a pan, in medium heat (I use about 1/2 tablespoon as it its just for me)
Once the oil is warm, add the onions and garlic, raise the heat enough to caramelize them. If you have some oregano and curry powder, add some to taste.

Once that process is completed, turn down heat back to medium and add the chicken sausage and sliced mushrooms. Cover it and lets it "simmer". Keep an eye on it to make sure nothing burns and everything remains "juicy". {Note: the TJs sausages are already cooked, as per the label. You simply want to make sure you heat them up well enough. No one wants to eat frozen meat.)

While you are waiting on the sausage to heat up, place your veggies in a steamer (if you have one) and steam away.

After about 15-20 mins or so, and once you notice the sausage has heated up well and the mushrooms have cooked as well, slice the sausage in multiple pieces and mix together with the onion and garlic thats already in the pan (similar to a "stir fry).

Check on your veggies-- are they nice and steamed?

FINAL STEP--  Mix up the veggies and the sausage 'stir fry' in one single bowl. Add some cheese on top if you have some on your fridge (I used feta).

Heat up a delicious tortilla and eat it on the side. I found this during my recent visit to Trader Joes and I think I discovered a new favorite:

...And thats all ladies and gents. Hope you liked it. For "dessert" i had a couple of tangerines and may have some dark chocolate later. But this dinner always hits the spot.

Whats your favorite quick and healthy dinner to make?
