  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir sausage until browned, about 5 minutes. Add onion to sausage; cook and stir until slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir sweet pepper, oregano, thyme, cayenne pepper, celery salt, and red pepper flakes into sausage mixture; cook and stir until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Mix quinoa into sausage mixture; cook and stir until quinoa is slightly toasted, about 1 minute. Pour broth and marinara sauce over quinoa mixture. Cover skillet and simmer until quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes.

  • Feel free to add shrimp, diced chicken, or sub in extra veggies.
  • Add more or less cayenne for your heat preference, or drizzle with Sriracha for a real kick in the pants.
