“This is a low-fat version of the classic Cajun dish. You can use any kind of meat...sausage, chicken, shrimp, or, as I do, lowfat turkey sausage. This is a snap to prepare. You'll love it!”

  1. Grill or fry sausage until almost cooked through. Drain and set aside. When cooled, cut into bite-size pieces.
  2. In a large skillet combine the celery, onion, bell pepper, garlic, tomatoes, broth, rice, bay leaf and seasoning. Mix well and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium low and add sausage. Cover and simmer until rice is tender, about 40 to 45 minutes.

I have made this recipe twice now and while the flavor is great, I could not figure out why when I followed the directions exactly my rice was not fully cooked. Turns out, this recipe does not use enough liquid for the amount of rice needed. With rice you need a 1:2 ratio. So instead of 2 cups of broth you actually need 3 for the amount of rice needed in the recipe.



What a great and easy recipe! I used half turkey sausage and half shrimp. Didn't have the cajun seasoning so made due with what I had on hand. It was really good. There were no leftovers! Thanks!



I make this meal for my family all the time, and we love it! Because I don't like spicy food, I make a few substitutions: 1. smoked sausage for the hot turkey sausage 2. Mexican-style diced tomatoes instead of the Italian style 3. 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning instead of the Cajun seasoning If I don't have Mexican-style diced tomatoes, then I use the Italian-style tomatoes and just cut back on the Cajun seasoning. This is great comfort food, and it is also great for those times when your husband calls you on the way home from work to mention that he invited a friend for dinner. I can have it simmering by the time they arrive, and I always get compliments.
