2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the sausages

  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausages and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables. 


Prep the vegetables; assemble the skewers

  • Remove the stems and seeds from the sweet mini peppers; cut the peppers into 2-inch pieces.
  • Cut the mushrooms in half lengthwise; keep any small mushrooms whole.
  • Peel and cut the onion into 8 equal wedges, keeping the end of each wedge attached at the root.

In a large bowl, combine the sweet mini peppers, mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, chili powder, and 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Using 6 [12] wooden skewers, thread the vegetables onto the skewers, alternating the ingredients.


Cook the vegetable skewers

In the same pan used for the sausages, working in batches if needed, add the vegetable skewers and cook over medium-high heat, turning once, until the vegetables are lightly browned and starting to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.


Transfer the sausages and vegetable skewers to individual plates and serve with the romesco sauces.
