Dirty Rice Recipe INSTRUCTIONS

Boil the brown rice in 1 can of chicken broth mixed with the same amount of water; add 2 branches of sliced celery to the brown rice as it boils in a pot. While the brown rice is boiling for about 30 minutes, slice and cook the turkey sausage on medium heat for 10-15 minutes in a skillet with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.

Boil in another pot ¾ of a sliced green bell pepper and a red bell pepper. (Optional) if you're adding 1 cup of red beans to the dirty rice recipe cook them for about 35-45 minutes, and then mix with the brown rice.

Begin adding 1 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning to the finished brown rice, then sprinkle some Parsley leaves into the rice; also add ½ or 1 whole stick of Land O'Lakes butter to the brown rice. Now begin slightly mixing everything that's in the rice pot together so that the butter melts sparingly. (You can use fresh parsley leaves or dried parsley flakes).

Add the sliced turkey sausage into the brown rice pot and mix everything together, including ½ teaspoon of Lawry's seasoning salt, and the 1 cup of red beans if you choose to add it to your dirty rice recipe.
