Quinoa and Sausage One-Pot Supper

1 lb. sausage (I used loose sausage: recipe calls for cubes)

1 yellow onion, chopped
2 TB chopped sage
1 cup organic apple or pear hard cider (I used non-alcoholic organic Knudsen Sparkling Pear)
1 cup quinoa, rinsed & drained
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp fine sea salt (I omitted this)
2 cups chopped kale or spinach leaves, lightly packed

In a large pot, cook sausage, onion & sage over medium-high heat until just browned, about 10 minutes.  Add cider, quinoa, cranberries, salt & 3/4 cup water & bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits.  Cover, reduce heat to medium-low & simmer until liquid is just absorbed, 25 -30 minutes.  Stir in kale, cover again & set aside off the heat for 5 minutes.  Uncover, fluff with a fork & serve.
