This is one of our family favorites. It is easy, healthy and tastes great. Lots of good stuff all at the same time. Earlier in the week, Chris posted on Work It, Mom her sausage soup slow cooker recipe and it reminded me that we haven't had any sausage yet this year.
That there is a travesty.
--5-6 chicken or turkey sausage links. I used 3 Itallian Seasoned Chicken and Turkey Sausage and 2 Chipotle Spiced Chicken Sausages--both varieties were from Trader Joe's
--1/2 package of mushrooms
--potatoes 1-2 medium brown ones or equivalent.
--few stalks of celery
--some baby carrots
(the amount of veggies really doesn't matter---it's completely up to you. If you have onion and bell pepper, use them. Sweet potato, eggplant, zuchinni, whatever; it's all good)
--2 cups chicken broth
--1/3 cup white wine (not necessarily necessary)
-->see that handful of spinach in the background under the potatoes and celery? I forgot to put it in. oops.
--cut all veggies into 2-inch chunks
--layer into crockpot, most to least dense
--add sliced sausage
--add broth and wine
--cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4.
--right before serving, add a handful of fresh spinach and cover for 10 minutes to wilt leaves
Delicious. And terribly easy--no spices are needed due to the flavorful sausage.
