Grilled Sausages with Lemon-Parsley Quinoa and Strawberry-Fig Relish

  • Prep Time 0:15
  • Cook Time 0:10
  • Estimated Cost $16.50

I almost kissed the guy at the farmers market when he offered me the 2 remaining baskets of figs at a seriously discounted price. I look forward to fresh figs all year and, while I’m perfectly happy just eating them plain, stem and all, this relish is awesome.


  • 2 fully-cooked sausages, any kind $4
  • 1 tsp olive oil Pantry
  • 6 large fresh figs $4
  • 4 large fresh strawberries $2
  • 1 small bunch basil leaves $1
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar $3 for a 16 oz.
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped Pantry
  • 1 cup quinoa $2
  • 1 small bunch parsley, chopped finely $1
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon $0.50
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry

Recipe Serves 2


  1. Cook quinoa according to directions. Set aside.
  2. Slice sausages on the bias. Heat the olive oil in a grill pan or heavy frying pan over high heat. Cook sausages until marks appear. Flip and cook on the other side.
  3. In a food processor or blender, combine 5 of the figs, the strawberries, the basil, one clove of garlic and the cider vinegar. Puree until smooth with small chunks. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Toss slightly-cooled quinoa with the lemon, remaining garlic, and parsley.
  5. To assemble dish, make a mound of quinoa on each plate. Spoon the relish around the edge of the quinoa and arrange the sausage slices atop the quinoa. Top each mound with half of a fig and a little more basil for garnish.
