Yesterday, I was feeling a little spicy so I figured I knew what would satisfy my craving. Red beans and rice with sausage. It sounded delicious and filling. I wanted something that would fill me up and prevent me from overindulging in the sweets. It did hit the spot.
Red Beans and Rice with Sausage
2 Tbs of olive oil
1 lb of spicy Italian Sausage
1 medium onion diced
3 cloves of garlic minced
1 14oz can diced tomatoes
1 14 oz can red kidney beans
1/2 c of red wine
1/2 c of chicken broth
5 cups of white rice cooked
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Heat skillet on medium heat and add olive oil. Saute' onion until it begins to soften, then add garlic. Add a little salt and pepper. Continue to cook for a few minutes. In the meantime cut sausage into bite size pieces and brown on all sides. Cover the skilled and cook for about 5 minutes. Remove lid and add the red wine and cook until reduced by half. Add the tomatoes and beans to skillet. Cook for a couple of minutes. Add rice and cayenne pepper. Add chicken broth and continue to cook until sausage is cooked through. Add salt and pepper to taste.
You can also use less rice if you like. I like alot of rice with mine.
