Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water and brown rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.

  • When rice is almost finished, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove sausage to a large bowl, leaving 1 tablespoon fat in the skillet. Add cooked rice to sausage in the bowl.

  • Add onion and garlic to the skillet and saute over medium heat until onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add celery and cook for 3 minutes. Add collard greens and saute until slightly wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Add diced tomatoes with their juices, white beans, Cajun seasoning, and red pepper flakes; simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve collard greens over the sausage and rice mixture, or mix it all together.
