Veg Cajun “Dirty” Rice
Ingredients for 3 servings
- 2 teaspoons avocado oil or olive oil
- 1/2 medium onion, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 2 celery stalks, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 vegan spicy Italian sausages, minced (I used Beyond Meat brand)
- 1 1/2 cups long grain brown rice
- 1 tablespoon The Fit Cook Cajun Southern Creole blend
- 2 teaspoons ground fennel or sage
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 4 cups no salt added vegetable broth
- Sea salt & pepper to taste
Set a carbon steel skillet on medium heat. Once hot, add oil, onion, bell pepper and celery. Cook for 2 -3 minutes until fragrant and the edges begin to brown on the onion and bell pepper. Add the garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute.
Add the sausage to the skillet and chop it up while it cooks to spread it out in the skillet. Cook for another 2 minutes, then add the brown rice.
Sprinkle in the seasonings and mix well, ensuring that every grain of rice is covered in oil and seasonings. Add the vegetable broth, bring to a light simmer, then reduce the heat and cover and cook for about 30 – 35 minutes, until all the liquid has been absorbed by the rice.
Flake the rice with a fork and season to taste with sea salt & pepper.
