Spanish Rice with Sausage

Spanish Rice with Sausage

This is an easy, gluten-free, stove-top meal that is usually liked by all.  Spanish rice is a nice side by itself, but if you add sausage, it becomes a main dish.  Serve it with a garden salad, and it’s a tasty summer meal that doesn’t require the oven.

If you like Spanish rice, you might be interested in trying Lynn’s Mexican Style Quinoa.  Personally, I think it’s a great idea, especially if your family is not fond of quinoa, and I hope to try it soon.

      Are Johnsonville sausages available near you? I don’t know if they all are, but many of theirs are GF according to their web site.

    I made Spanish rice with sausage today, for some meals this week and froze portions for later. I added, cumin, hot peppers and a pablano pepper, black beans and corn. Used my home canned tomatoes! It turned out great!

    We use brown rice which takes longer to cook than white rice. Can we put the rice in their cooked? Will it still come out good?

      Most of the chicken broth called for in the recipe is absorbed by the rice. Use broth for cooking your brown rice (however much you would normally use). Then cook the sausage, onion, and garlic and add the tomato sauce and cooked rice. I think that will work!
