We swapped rice for protein- and fiber-rich quinoa in this faux dirty rice, but any cooked whole grain would work well; give bulgur or farro a try to change things up.

Serves 4 (serving size: 1 1/3 cups)


+ Add To Shopping List
1 teaspoon canola oil
6 ounces spicy chicken sausage links, casings removed
1 (8-oz.) pkg. chopped onion, pepper, and celery blend
1/2 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
3 1/2 cups frozen cooked quinoa (such as 365 Everyday Value)


1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add sausage to pan; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until browned and cooked through, stirring to crumble. Add vegetables to pan; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until tender.

2. Add shrimp and Creole seasoning to sausage mixture in pan; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in quinoa; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until shrimp are done and quinoa is thoroughly heated.
