Sausage and kale with quinoa

Sausage and kale with quinoa recipe

I was given some sausages from Grandad’s Sausages and they are really amazing. I really recommend trying them as they don’t skimp on flavours and the sausages remain moist after cooking! They are based locally in Bury too! Support local!

To celebrate British Sausage Week, I’ve created a quick and easy dish for the cold weather we’ve been having. I’ve also used the kale I got from my vegetable box to create this healthy dish.
