Sausage and White Bean Skillet brings comfort and ease to a busy winter's evening. An amazing one pot meal.
The holidays are over and all my decorations are put away. January and February are here for a while and I am not thrilled about it.
These months always seem the longest for me, especially since the last few years have been tough winters.
We were stuck in the house quite a bit last year, but there were also the cold nights where I am chauffeuring my kids around to their activities. When this occurs, everyone wants a warm comforting meal, and they want it quick.
An easy skillet of spicy sausage and white beans served over rice is just the thing to make for dinner.
Since I overindulged during the holidays, January is the time to start eating better. So I lightened this recipe up by using spicy chicken sausage.
You can use any type of smoked sausage that you like, but a lean chicken or turkey sausage is always my choice.
The beans and tomatoes make it hearty, but they are ingredients that are good for you. I love the nuttiness of brown rice, and I always keep several boxes of frozen brown rice in my freezer.
It’s healthy, and I love the fact that it can be ready in a few minutes with just the push of a microwave button.
This simple dish can be served with a salad to complete your dinner. When I am really feeling healthy, I make a detox kale salad but I also love my spinach salad with grapes, blue cheese and almonds in the winter too.
This recipe is very adaptable, and while I used white beans, kidney beans or black beans would work in this recipe.
Comfort food doesn’t have to pack on the calories! You can have a hearty meal that is also quite healthy.
