This is rice with a kick. It is best served with Cajun chicken or another Cajun dish. You will love how this complements your main dish; however, because this rice contains some meat, it can be eaten alone. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Bring 1 1/2 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan, and stir in the brown rice. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 40 to 50 minutes. Set the rice aside.
  2. Place ground turkey into a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the turkey until the meat gives up some of its fat, 2 to 3 minutes; stir in green bell pepper, onion, and minced garlic. Cook and stir until the turkey is crumbly and no longer pink and the vegetables are tender, 5 to 8 more minutes. Drain excess grease, if necessary. Stir in the cooked brown rice, garlic powder, celery flakes, Cajun seasoning, black pepper, and 1/3 cup water.
  3. Bring the mixture to a simmer, and cook until the liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and additional black pepper, if desired.

This was pretty good. I ended up doubling the cajun seasoning and adding 1/2 teaspoon of salt because it seemed bland.

Good basic recipe but the seasonings definitely need to be altered if you prefer kick in your dinner. I practically tripled the Cajun seasoning and added the following: 1/2 t. gumbo file, Louisiana hot sauce to taste(~1T.) and red chili flakes to taste (~1/2t.). I omitted the celery salt (didn't have any on hand) and subbed in yellow and red bell peppers for the green and ground beef for the turkey. I also added a chopped tomato just to use up some produce. I can't wait to eat this tomorrow after the spices have really sunk in - mmm!
