Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time25 minutes
Servings - 4 persons


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 12 oz. package chicken apple sausage (I use Aidell's brand)
  • onion, sliced
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cubes chicken bouillon cubes (Herb-Ox brand is great for a gluten free option!)
  • 15 oz. can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 plum tomato, chopped


  • Rinse quinoa in fine strainer and set aside.
  • In saute pan over medium high heat, warm the coconut oil.
  • Add sausage and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until adequate internal temperature is reached if using raw sausage links.
  • Remove the sausage and add the onions. Saute onions until they become slightly transparent.
  • Add quinoa and toast slightly for about 6 minutes, stirring often.
  • Stir in water, bouillon, and chickpeas to the pan and stir thoroughly until chicken base is dissolved. (You could substitute 2 cups of chicken broth for the water and bouillon.)
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with spoon.
  • Stir in chopped tomatoes.
  • Slice sausage and place over quinoa mixture or you can stir it all together if you like.
  • Serve Chicken Apple Sausage and Chickpeas with Quinoa.
