Quick & Easy Meal - Roasted Vegetable Medley with Chorizo Pork Sausage

1/13/2013 *Sara-Marie* 0 Comments

Tonight I came home starving from a long day and needed food fast! I would be lying if I didn't contemplate eating something "off-plan" so I knew I had to stuff good, healthy food in my mouth as soon as possible.

Without putting any more thought to the idea of take-out, I preheated the oven and started chopping all of the vegetables I had in my fridge. I started making my typical roasted vegetable dish (find recipe here) and then started thinking about what protein I would make alongside my veggies.

After staring in the fridge for a few minutes, I picked up a package of all natural chorizo sausage that I found in Wegman's this week.
I love finding minimally processed foods with an ingredient list I can pronounce!
Since the chorizo was fully cooked, I knew it didn't need much time in the oven to heat through. I quickly chopped the chorizo and added the pieces to the vegetables for the last 15 minutes of roasting.

The end product was not only delicious, but very satisfying and incredibly easy. In less than 40 minutes, I had a healthy and guilt-free meal in front of me that I thoroughly enjoyed.
