Crockpot Chicken Sausage & Pepper Quinoa Mash

If you can’t tell by the amount of recent crockpot recipes on my blog that I absolutely love this time of the year and making easy crockpot recipes than look no further because here is a NEW one. This one is new to me – I had done quinoa in the crockpot before for my Berry Breakfast Mash (coming soon), but I had never done it for a savory dish. Shane and I live on chicken sausages, it is one of our staple freezer item just because they are good, easy, and healthy. So, I spiced things up; added some peppers, sausage, and quinoa and dumped it into the crockpot – BEST decision I made.


  • (2) 12oz packages of chicken sausage
    • I tried out Aidells ‘Roasted Garlic & Gruyere Cheese’ AND HIGHLY recommend them
  • 3 bell peppers (I used 1 green, 1 orange, & 1 red)
  • 1 medium sweet onion
  • 15oz reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1.5 cups quinoa
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • feta cheese (topping)


  1. Chop peppers, onion, and sausage into bite sized pieces.
  2. Combine broth, quinoa, apple cider vinegar, mustard, honey, peppers, onion, and sausage.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat for 5-6 hours or on high heat for 2 hours (I would suggest cooking on low heat for best results).
  4. Stir gently, and top with feta cheese!
  5. ENJOY!
