Cajun Dirty Rice

If you're looking for another easy and simple dish to throw together after a long day at work - here you go! I love just about everything about rice dishes: they are cheap, filling, and work wonderful as leftovers. This recipe is no exception. Read below for how to make it yourself!

P.S - I had the hardest time finding Cajun seasoning, so I just made my own, which was super easy to do. If anyone knows where I can find some, please let me know in the comments!

-2 tbsps vegetable oil
-1/2 large onion, diced
-1 large green bell pepper, seeded and diced
-2 large celery stalks, diced
-12 ounces kielbasa, cut in bite size pieces
-2 tablespoons homemade Cajun seasoning (equal parts paprika, salt, garlic powder, black pepper,onion powder,cayenne pepper, dried oregano, dried thyme)
-2 cups white rice
-3 cups low sodium chicken broth
-1 cup water
-2 or 3 scallions, for garnish


1. Over medium-high heat, preheat oil in a pot with a tight fitting lid. Add chopped onion, peppers, and celery. Saute until the vegetables soften, about four minutes or so. Add the kielbasa, and cook for another four minutes or so. Mix in Cajun seasoning.

2. Add rice, chicken broth, and water. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Put lid on the pot, and reduce the heat to as low as it will go. Allow to cook untouched for 20 minutes.

3. Top with scallions, if desired. Enjoy!
