One Pot Rice with Sausage and Peppers

Well, I have officially been a part of the blogging world for 3 weeks and I am having such a blast. The process of finding new dishes and documenting them through this site has made me unreasonably happy. Not only has my list of foods to try grown exponentially, but I have begun to connect with and be inspired by others who are also working to create, and celebrate delicious meals.

Last week I learned a new tip from this article that suggested adding uncooked rice to sauteed onions and spices in order to incorporate more flavor. Then, yesterday before leaving work, I clicked on this article that came across my feed.  It looked SO yummy (and filling, and simple, and would allow me to try the new rice trick) that I went directly to the grocery store and straight home to make it. To me, this is the reason that I am here. I want to be inspired by others to try new meals, new flavors, and new techniques.  Thank you Daddy and Me Foodie and The Fabulous Fare Sisters!

Steps and Notes:  (I made this double batch so I would have dinner and lunches)

  1. Prepare, measure & chop ingredients
    1. 1 large onion chopped
    2. 1 red pepper and 2 yellow peppers chopped
    3. 4 cups of rice (I used texmati / brown)
    4. 4 cups of water (I used stock)
    5. 6 sausages cut into links (I used hot italian)
  2. Cook the sausage until  brown, then remove it / place in a bowl
  3. Saute an onion for about 6 minutes, then add garlic and sausage
  4. Add uncooked rice and and spices (cracked red pepper, salt and pepper) and cook for 2 minutes
  5. Add 2 cups of stock and the peppers.
  6. Bring it to a boil and then down to a simmer.
  7. Put the top on and simmer for 45 minutes
    1. The original recipe said 20 but I only had brown rice so that required a longer cook time
  8. Remove the lid and cook for 5 more minutes to cook off the excess liquid
  9. Serve with shaved parmesan cheese.

I had this for lunch the next day and the flavors were even more pronounced.  Yum! Highly recommend this one.
