grilled vegetables and sausages with spicy peanut sauce: this simple dinner recipe has become one of my favorite go-tos this summer. besides being delicious, it’s super simple and i always have at least 90% of the ingredients on hand. let’s discuss, shall we?
ok, so, grilled vegetables and sausages with spicy peanut sauce. given that it’s summer, anytime we can heat up the outdoors instead of the kitchen, i’m in. as i haven’t yet tried to grill rice (though i think maybe it could be done…and now i kind of want to try it…), i do cook that in the kitchen but the vegetables (onion and broccoli) and sausage (hot italian turkey for me, please) all get cooked outside. where it’s already hot. perfect.
as far as the veggies themselves, i always have a supply of onions and i buy broccoli most weeks, because it has secretly snuck up on me over the years and become one of my favorite vegetables.
hot italian turkey sausage basically has a permanent spot in my freezer (do your future self a favor and separate the links and freeze them so they are not touching each other so that you can always just defrost exactly the number you need, rather than the number that are fused together). then all we need is sriracha (check!) and peanut butter (check!).
the onion and broccoli take a few minutes longer so we give them a quick headstart then we add the sausage to the grill. while this goodness is going on outside, we cook the rice and stir together the world’s easiest sauce (seriously; it passes my husband’s 3 ingredient rule): sriracha + peanut butter + water. by the time the rice is cooked, everything else is done and dinner is served.
if ever there was a meal to keep the frozen pizza at bay (bonus: not having to turn the oven on!), it is this super simple grilled vegetables and sausages with spicy peanut sauce. in fact, i think i’m going to add this to next week’s meal plan right now…
what else we’re eating:
i’m in the final stages of testing a recipe for sesame ginger salmon that i’m excited to share with you soon. in the meantime, dinner the other night included grilled chicken that i marinated in this spicy miso paste. yum. i just used one kind of miso paste, the kind i mentioned here (which you could also just make if you don’t happen to have a container of that spicy miso paste in the back corner of your freezer, behind the turkey sausages, demanding to know when he’s going to get used up). verdict: green light
