If this is what pork & beans are like in Greece, I think I’ve found my new favorite! I obviously love the flavors of Greece and this encompasses all of them. I also like this meal because it is full of protein and fiber – two of my favorite components for a satisfying meal. Served alongside a green salad and some garlic bread, dinner was quickly, and deliciously, served.

Recipe: Spinach & Feta Chicken Sausage with Garbanzo Beans - serves 4

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 package chicken sausage (I used Bilinski’s Organic Spinach & Feta Chicken Sausages)
  • 1 – 15 oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2/3 cup roasted red peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 2 cups fresh spinach (I accidently used mine in my lunch that day)
  • spices: red pepper flakes, garlic salt

Heat olive oil in large pan. Add onion and sausages. When lightly browned add garbanzo beans, red peppers and spinach. When heated through and spinach has wilted, toss with feta cheese, spices and serve! (Thanks to the Taster for serving this to me!)

    This is one of my favorite chicken sausage flavors! I normally get mine from Trader Joe’s.

    Have a great weekend Emily :)

    This looks yummy! I’m pretty much obsessed with feta cheese (and all greek style recipes) so this appeals to my taste buds.

    As ‘the nutritionist’ forgot to mention…she ate all of the spinach with her lunch so it was lacking in the meal – and the pictures…

      Sorry…I didn’t read that recipe closely…’the nutritionist’ was honest about the spinach, but it still put a handicap on my cooking abilities that evening.

    I made this last night for dinner…it was fantastic! My four year old, however, says “what am I eating?” … I’m looking forward to trying this as a side dish without the sausage as well. Yum!
