1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tbsp Cajun Seasoning
I make my own Cajun seasoning with this… 2 tsp salt, 2tsp paprika, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 ¼ tsp dried oregano, 1 ¼ tsp dried thyme, ½ tsp of red pepper flakes – I used this on other dishes as well.
1 1b of turkey kielbasa
1 diced onion
1 green bell pepper
2 celery stalks
3 cloves of fresh garlic
1 ¼ cup of uncooked brown rice
2 ½ cups of chicken broth, I used low sodium and added seasoning where needed
1 16 oz can of Italian crushed tomatoes
Dash of Worcestershire
In a large Dutch oven or skillet, sauté onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic until tender with olive oil, when veggies start becoming soft add sausage. Stir in crushed tomatoes, and add Cajun seasoning, stir in the rice and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed
**Divide into 6 servings
I like to serve this with a big green salad and Ice tea!!

**Tip – If you absolutely do not want to do rice, I understand! Make this a stew and add zucchini, squash, more bell pepper, mushrooms and your favorite veggies to cut out the starch!
