Hearty and easy. I whipped this recipe up with the few ingredients I had and my boyfriend loved it. It's so easy he can make it!

  • Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey sausage, and cook until well browned on the outside, and no longer pink on the inside. Remove cooked sausage, then stir in garlic and onion. Cook for a few minutes until the onion softens and begins to turn translucent. Add green pepper and cook for 2 minutes.

  • Pour in half of the vegetable stock along with the tomatoes and pimiento. Season to taste with red pepper flakes, Cajun seasoning, and pepper. Cook until the liquid has almost completely evaporated. Stir in sausage with remaining vegetable broth, and simmer until all is hot. Serve sausage mixture over brown rice.

I made this as directed with hot turkey sausage, but did make one small substitution: 1 c diced tomatoes instead of the grape tomatoes since I didn't have any on hand. I enjoyed this and will make it again. I used a leaner turkey sausage. Since the recipe doesn't call for any oil or cooking spray when you brown the sausage or the cook the garlic/onions/peppers, I assumed it was because I was supposed to cook the vegetables in the fat that cooked out of the sausage. I had no cooked-out fat, so I added a small amount of olive oil to the skillet instead. This worked out well for me. In the future, I might grill the sausage outdoors, then slice and add to the vegetable mixture at the end. Thanks, tiffschrie! Read More

YUM! We all loved this. I used kielbasa but this would be just as good with any type of sausage you prefer. I also used a can of diced tomato because it's all I had and I didn't have any pimento (I thought I did when I chose this recipe) but I used everything else as how it's written. However because it was kielbasa and didn't need to brown as raw sausage needs to I started everything in the skillet at the same time as I started the rice. I used brown basmati so that takes a while to cook - and everything was so delicious and we will definitely be making this regularly!! Yum! Read More

This is a great recipe and very quick to throw together if you use whole grain minute rice. The rice takes 5 minutes to cook and tastes great:). I used red peppers because its what I have on hand. Read More

This is an excellent recipe...especially if you're not too confident in your cooking skills. It's fast easy and delicious. Try adding yellow bell peppers to the mix. It turned out great for me. Read More

Simple recipe I was able to use with ingredients I had on hand. I didn't add pimento because I didn't have it and used red peppers but it was still delicious. Read More
