I had to make some substitutions the second time I made this dish, because the spices were lacking and the instant rice gave a less than authentic flavor. Instead of garlic powder, I used a couple of cloves of fresh garlic. I omitted the onion powder and chili powder, and used salt, pepper, paprika, basil, parsley, and a little cayenne to taste. I also used 2 chopped fresh tomatoes for the canned. Instead of instant rice, I used long grain white rice and simmered it, covered, for 25 minutes. The few extra minutes work and cooking time made a difference in the taste. This is a good recipe with a few alterations.


Definitely need to make some changes here so this will be more authentic. First, I sauteed the green peppers, onions and celerly in butter. This makes a "Trinity," the base for many Cajun recipes. Also, use Cajun seasoning, not what is listed. I used frozen diced onions and green peppers as a timesaver. Added cayenne pepper, bay leaves, oregano and hot sauce as well as diced Andouille sausage.


Good basic recipe, however I feel that it needs more spices. Have customised this recipe to suit our tastes!
