We called it ‘Dirty Rice’…

Dirty Rice

(Rice Bowl, Kielbasa Risotto, Rice and Sausage….I don’t know what you want to call it, but it was good)

1 lb Kielbasa

2 tbl Olive Oil

1 Medium Yellow Onion

1/2 pint Grape Tomatoes

1 Handful chopped kale (or spinach/brussel sprouts)

1/4 cup White Wine

1 tbl minced Garlic

salt & pepper

1 cup Rice (I used brown)

1 cup Broth (I used veggie broth)

1 can Black Beans (drained and rinsed)

1 tsp Sirracha

1 jar Salsa (I used a homemade jar of my moms)

Toppings: Avocado, cilantro, sour cream, cheese, hot sauce, whatever tickles your fancy

Brown the Kielbasa in the olive oil

I chop the veggies(onion, kale, tomatoes) while it browns, then remove the kielbasa and allow to cool. Deglaze the pan with the white wine and allow the alcohol to cook off for about 1 minute.

Add the chopped veggies, garlic, salt & pepper.

Reduce heat and cover, stirring frequently.

Once the onions are translucent and the kale has wilted, ‘squoosh’ the veggies to one side and add rice.

Allow the rice to toast for a few minutes before adding broth. Check your rice instructions for cooking time(I used instant brown so this was a quick meal).

While the rice cooks, chop the kielbasa (on an angle if you’re feeling fancy) and add back to the pan when rice is finished ie all the liquid has absorbed.

Add beans, sirracha, salsa and stir together.

I topped mine with avocado, cilantro, and some Frank’s Hot Sauce (because I really do put that sh*t on everything).

Feel free to substitute the kielbasa for chorizo, chicken or steak. What would you put in your dirty rice?
