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
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
