This Easy Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies over Quinoa recipe has become one of my favorite things to make ahead for lunches. Seriously. I really love it! And what I really love is how simple it is to make!
Sheet pan meals really can’t get easier. Chop everything. Season. Roast everything and done! It even makes a great side dish as well! I like to make the quinoa in a rice cooker too making this one of those meals I can walk away from and go get other things done.
Tips for making Easy Sheet Pan Sausage and Veggies over Quinoa:
- Use your favorite chicken sausage. I used a smoked version made fresh in my grocery store. It’s filled with green onions and so amazingly flavorful!
- Use your favorite veggies. The possibilities are endless. I used my three favorite roasted veggies ever: broccoli, carrots, and brussels.
- The quinoa is totally optional, but I love the flavor and texture that it adds to the dish.
- Line your pan with foil for even easier clean up!
