Lunch/dinner is ready with no fuss!
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 bell peppers, chopped (I used green, yellow and red)
- 1 (14oz) JENNIE-O® Fully Cooked Hardwood Smoked Turkey Kielbasa
- 1 ½ cup uncooked rice
- 3 cup vegetable broth
- 1 teaspoon saffron or 1 packet of seasoning with saffron (optional) (see notes)
- Salt and pepper to taste (see notes)
- Cilantro leaves to garnish
- Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell peppers; cook for 3-5 minutes until fragrant. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.
- Add sausage and cook until browned on both sides, about 5 minutes. Add rice and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Add vegetable broth and saffron, if using, and mix well. Test taste and adjust salt and pepper if necessary. Cook uncovered, over medium-high heat, until most of the liquid has evaporated.
- When the liquid has evaporated cover, reduce heat to low and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until rice is tender.
- Garnish with cilantro, if desired. Serve hot.
The saffron and seasoning mix is to make the rice yellow if you don't mind the color of the rice you can just skip this ingredient. If you do not find/have the saffron you can use an envelope of this seasoning mix that is easy to buy in any grocery store.
I highly recommend tasting before adding more salt. Remember that the vegetable broth has salt already so be careful. In my case, I used a seasoning mix so I did not add any more salt.
