Remaking a rice favorite – in a simple way!

Before my veg days one of my favorite dishes to make was Rice-a-Roni (chicken) with frozen green peas and often mixed with ground beef.  I don’t use too many packaged foods anymore and have never tried to recreate this before, I usually make risotto when havng a creamy rice craving but today I was short on time.

Don’t get me wrong, this is really nothing like Rice-a-Roni – it’s much better! Better tasting, better for you, better for the animals!

Here is my new rice dish, it’s very easy and few ingredients:

Ingredients:

1 3/4 c white rice

1/3 c tvp

4 cups vegetarian “chicken” stock (or just vegetable)

1 c diced carrots (or less)

1 c frozen green peas

Field Roast Apple Sage Sausage

Heat veg stock to boiling, add rice, tvp and carrots. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. During the last 3 minutes add green peas.

While rice is cooking, saute Field Roast in lighlty oiled pan over medium-low heat until lightly browned.

Serve sausage whole with rice or cut an mix in the rice casserole style.  I like tthis as the apple sage adds an extra tang to the rice!
