  • 2 cups TruRoots Sprouted Rice & Quinoa Blend I get this at Costco
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1.5 TBS Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 TBS coconut oil or butter
  • 3 pork sausages casings removed
  • 1 TBS poultry seasoning
  • 3/4 cup onion diced
  • 1 cup diced mushrooms
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ¾ cup rough chopped pecans
  • parsley garnish


  • In a medium saucepan, combine the sprouted rice/quinoa blend with chicken broth, oregano, and dijon mustard. Bring to a boil. Cover. Reduce heat and let simmer 25 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, melt coconut oil and sauté onion, garlic, mushrooms, sausage, and poultry seasoning until sausage is fully cooked. 
  • Add the cranberries and pecans and saute for 2 more minutes, and remove from heat. 
  • When rice/quinoa blend is cooked, combine with sausage mixture.
  • Garnish with parsley.


I have noticed that the rice mixture might appear quite sticky. As it cools, it takes on more of a crumbly texture, so don't worry!
