I love knowing that what I'm eating is healthy, but only when it's tasty! I made this dish following the recipe, and my guess is these turkey sausages are a very poor substitute to the real thing. Worse than tasteless, they are nasty! Sorry eatingwell.com: I'm usually a big fan! But this time, it's just not good.
To keep it simple, we've opted for just the essential ingredients in this rendition of the hearty Creole favorite: sausage, okra, rice and a little spice.

I modified a bit based on what I had on hand....a locally-made smoked beef sausage (delicious spices), Creole seasoning, large can of petite diced tomatoes, beef broth and a lot of water. Sauteed the onions, celery, spices and garlic and then added all to the crock pot. Added more water periodically for the rice to absorb. 8 hrs. on low...delicious! Everyone (some picky eaters) enjoyed it. Served w/ corn bread on the side...
I thought this was very good and very easy to make. The soup had great flavor and had just the right amount of heat (I'm a wuss when it comes to heat). Next time I might decrease the amount of rice used to cut back on calories and to allow it to be more soupy and throw in another vegetable or two (celery, red pepper, or carrot). Also the leftovers reheated well and tasted fine. I agree that this recipe is a keeper!
Very Nice. I added 3 chicken breast to the sausage and red bell pepper which gave it nice color. Family liked it, I think I'll keep this one.
I've made this dish twice and the family loves it. I use Creole seasoning instead of Cajun and added raw shrimp as well during the last ten minutes of cooking. This dish is definitely in the rotation for simple meals during the week.
