Kielbasa with Broccoli, Cauliflower and Carrots

Christi Cook Recipe

By Christi Cook standinglynx

My kids came up with this recipe. I gave them the challenge to find one meat they like, three veggies of different colors and how to get them all to work together. I, also, asked them to find a bread group item to go with it. They loved experimenting.

Ingredients

1 pkg
kielbasa
1 pkg
california blend veggies
1 box
orzo pasta
3 Tbsp
olive oil

Directions

1
Get your orzo (Don't use rice.) and cook according to package directions. Be careful to check it as it's cooking because it's easy to overcook it.
2
In a wok or large fairly deep skillet, pour in 1 tablespoon olive oil (Your choice of what kind you use.)Put frozen California blend veggies in the wok/skillet and drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Cover with a lid. Stir occasionally.
3
While veggies are cooking cut up the kielbasa into bite size pieces. I like to cut them into 1/2 inch slices and cut those into half so it appears that you have more since the kids like to fight over it.
4
Put the kielbasa in the wok/skillet over the cooking veggies and stir. Add more oil as needed to prevent sticking. Cook until heated through and all veggies are fork tender.
5
Drain orzo and put into wok/skillet with the kielbasa-veggie mixture. Stir thorough. Add a glass of milk and you have all 4 food groups.
