Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Sage Sausage and Veggie Pita Pockets

Want something the whole family can enjoy?  How about a pita pocket?  This is full of protein and veggies, so it's pretty healthy, too.  I like this dish during any time of the year, too, because it's so colorful.  It could be a part of a Christmas celebration or a Mardi Gras celebration or anything in between!  It's just a fun dish to serve.

2 lbs sage sausage
3 bell peppers (all colors), chopped
1 large red onion, chopped
5 white mushrooms, chopped
1 cup apple jelly
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
Pita pockets

Chop all veggies and put aside.  Crumble and fry up the sausage in a large pan.  Add the veggies when the sausage has been cooked through.  Cook on the stove top for about 5 minutes on high, stirring constantly.

In a small saucepan, mix together the apple jelly and the mustard.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. 

Fill a pita pocket with the sausage mixture and drizzle with a little of the apple/mustard sauce.  Enjoy!
