Munchy Monday: Quick & Dirty Rice

I haven’t posted a recipe in a few weeks, and I’ve had a craving for this lately. So, it only made sense that I post it for you (and cook it for us). I give you [drumroll please] …


This dish can be done in the amount of time it takes to cook the rice. With mainly fresh ingredients, few spices are needed. Enjoy!

1c uncooked rice (I use a mix of white and brown)
1/2lb favorite sausage (I like chorizo)
3/4lb shrimp
1 clove garlic, crushed (~1tbsp jarred crushed garlic)
2 stalks celery
1 bell pepper (I used yellow)
1 15oz can organic diced tomatoes
1/2c organic chicken broth

Bring 1 2/3c water to boil in pan. Once boiling add rice. Cover; reduce heat to low; simmer for ~20 minutes.

While the rice cooks, chop veggies and begin browning the sausage with the garlic in a pan over medium heat. Once browned, add vegetables and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and add shrimp. Once the shrimp are pink, remove pan from heat.

Spoon sausage mixture over rice. Serve.

Note: This would be great with onion added as well. I cannot eat onion while breastfeeding (it upsets the baby’s stomach), so this recipe excludes the onion.
