  • pan
  • chopping board
  • knife
  • pot


  • 500 g Wild Rice and quinoa mixed I used a ready cooked pack
  • 10 small sausages or 6 regular size *
  • 200 g broccolini tender stems
  • 1 large red onion
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed and chopped
  • 2 small red peppers
  • 8 baby courgettes/zucchini or use 2 regular sized zucchini
  • 8 leaves Cavolo Nero or kale
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1/3 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp curry powder as hot or mild as you wish
  • 1/2 lemon juice ( or 3 tbsp)
  • 1 pinch black pepper freshly ground
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • Place the chopped onion in a deeper pan or a skillet with one tbsp olive oil. Cook on medium fire for 1 minute.
  • Add the sausages and cook covered for 3-6 min depending on the sausage size.
  • Add the cumin and the curry powders, give it all a good mix and then bring on and add all the chopped veggies- the peppers, broccoli stems, Cavolo Nero courgettes (I’ve cut into halves lengthways). Cook for 5 min covered and stir a couple of times.
  • Add the cooked rice and quinoa, stir and cook for an extra 4 minutes.
  • Season to taste, drizzle the lemon juice and serve while hot.


* This recipe realistically is for two adults and two children but if you are making it for 4 adults I suggest use three to four little sausages or two regular ones per person. Ultimately of course use as many sausages as you would like to have depending on how hungry you really are, this was just an indication. I’d go for more veggies rather than sausages but hey, I’ll leave it up to you to decide. 
*I have used ready cooked rice and quinoa mix but of course many times I just use leftover or cook it all from fresh - it really depends on what I have and mood I am in.
