A quick and easy weeknight dinner filled with crisped sausage, zesty rice and sweet bell peppers. It’ll fill your belly with hearty goodness!



  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb package sausage (smoked, garlic), sliced into 1/2″ rounds
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup wholegrain brown rice
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 14oz can diced tomato
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 14oz can white beans


  1. In a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the sliced sausage, and fry for another 5 minutes, or until the sausage begins to brown. Add the green pepper and rice, and cook for an additional minute.
  2. Add the tomato paste, paprika, chili powder, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Add the can of diced tomatoes, chicken broth and white beans and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked and the liquid is absorbed. Serve immediately.

Leftovers keep in the fridge, in an airtight container, for 3-4 days, or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
