Smokey Sausage & Potato Stew

This one pot wonder is a flavorful blast of goodness. It's easily made vegan by using meatless sausages, and it can easily turn any leftover meat (or beans for that matter)into something new and yummy.

This dish was also featured at this year's National Black Arts Festival, plus a made a vegan version for a recent What's Cooking? class at Sevananda Natural Foods Market, and another version using Greek style lamb sausages is featured in a new Life Chef video ... coming soon!

Smokey Sausage & Potato Stew
1 medium onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 lb of new potatoes (red potatoes) thinly sliced
1 lb of turkey or meatless sausage, removed from casing
1 to 1 1/2 cup of prepared tomato sauce
2-3 Tbsp Life Chef Flamenco spice blend
- OR - combination smoked & sweet paprika, cayenne pepper, turmeric, garlic and thyme
1 cup green olive, sliced
1 cup of fresh parsley, chopped

In a large pot saute onions and garlic in olive oil over medium-high heat until tender.

Add potatoes and sausage, stirring to break up any chunks.

Season with Life Chef Flamenco Spice blend, stir in tomato sauce, cover and let cook until meat is cooked through and potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally, about 15-20 minutes.

Just before serving, stir in the olives and parsley. Serve immediately.
