Roasted Turkey Sausage with Apples and Butternut Squash

Roasted Turkey Sausage with Apples and Butternut Squash

Doesn’t this look wonderful. So you can brag about it you need to make this all organic ingredients recipe. It has a spice that is usually only found in German breads. Can you guess which one? If you guessed caraway seeds, then you were right.

I have never seen the seed used in any North American dish, but it is used in traditional European cuisine, and is one of the dominant spices featured in several savory dishes.

The seed or herb is very aromatic. The caraway is a member of  the Umbelliferae family, which includes other herbs and spices like parsley, dill, anise, fennel, and cumin.

An herbal tea prepared with caraway seeds is used as a remedy for digestive disorders, heartburn, loss of appetite, and to dispel intestinal worms.

All of this in just one cup of what is in this meal: Arugula. The flavor of Arugula is peppery and  pungent. The salad also includes mint, lemon juice, orange bell pepper and all the rest that is in this fast and simple meal idea…you can’t go wrong with preparing and eating it.
