“You don't have to sacrifice the traditional smoky punch of this Cajun favorite just because you're short on time. All you need is some purchased sausage and quick-cooking brown rice to create a rich, satisfying dinner on any weeknight. Have some sliced berries for dessert to cool off your palate!”


    • 1 teaspoon canola oil
    • 8 ounces andouille sausage, (see Ingredient note) or low-fat kielbasa, cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
    • 1 16-ounce bag frozen bell pepper and onion mix
    • 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
    • 2 cups instant brown rice
    • 8 ounces raw shrimp, (26-30 per pound), peeled and deveined


  • 1 Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage and pepper-onion mix; cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables soften, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 2 Add broth to the pot and bring to a boil. Add rice, stir once, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add shrimp and stir to incorporate. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
  • Ingredient Note: Andouille sausage is a smoky, mildly spicy pork sausage commonly used in Cajun cooking. Look for it near other smoked sausages in large supermarkets or specialty food stores.
