Yet again it was getting late in the evening, heading on 9:00 and I needed to make something for dinner. Obviously something that could be made pretty quickly, was tasty and that was Jillian’s Kitchen worthy! I think I had success, in fact I know I did because I’m already excited for lunch tomorrow (and whose kidding, dinner too!). This is definitely going on my list of things to make again and make often.
Sausage & Rice Skillet: Serves 4
1TB Olive Oil
2 Hot Italian Turkey Sausages (approx 3-4oz Each) – cubed
1C Black Beans (Canned/Drained)
1C Cooked Spinach
Salt & Pepper
Cayenne Pepper – Optional
In a sauce pot bring the water and 1.5tsp of olive oil to a boil with a pinch of salt, add the rice, reduce to a simmer, cover and let it cook until the water is completely absorbed (this takes my stove approximately 20 minutes).
In a large skillet place the remaining oil over medium heat and add the sausage, cook for 4-5 minutes until cooked through, drain the fat from the pan and add the corn, black beans and spinach with a pinch of salt and pepper and continue cooking to warm the beans and corn through. Once the rice is done add it to the skillet and stir to incorporate all the ingredients, I let it cook together for another 2 minutes then served. If you like things hot add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the top!
