Description

These super quick and easy Italian Sausage and Veggie Bowls come together in less than 20 minutes for a healthy and delicious meal idea.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil 
  • 1 bell pepper, diced 
  • 1 zucchini, diced 
  • 1 package Italian sausage of choice, sliced (I like True Story Foods Italian Chicken Sausage) 
  • 1 package microwaveable rice of choice OR 2 cups cooked rice/quinoa
  • 1 cup tzatziki (see notes for a homemade version) 
  • 1 cup diced cucumber 
  • salt and pepper to taste, if desired 

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Once hot add the pepper and zucchini and saute for about 5 minutes. 
  2. Then, add the sausage and cook until browned, about 5-8 additional minutes. 
  3. Cook your rice according to package directions. 
  4. To serve, top the rice with sausage and veggies, a good dollop of tzatziki, and about 1/4 cup of the cucumbers. 
  5. To meal prep, assemble everything but don’t add the tzatziki. Add when you’re ready to eat and store in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Notes

  • You can customize this and substitute based on the veggies you have in your fridge 
  • Hummus and/or fresh herbs make a nice addition here, as well 

Homemade tzatziki: 

  • 1 cup plain, Greek yogurt  
  • 1/3 cup grated zucchini
