This meal is incredibly fast and easy to make. It is full of unique, bright flavors that even the non-veggie lover will enjoy. The sausage I used was by Garrett County Farms, the chicken-apple sausage. I found this product at Sprouts and Whole Foods, both in Austin. It is gluten-free, high protein, low-fat, and they use no antibiotics. This meal can also be made vegetarian.
