2 1/4 cups water, divided
1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 cup uncooked brown rice farina
2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
4 ounces (1/2-inch) cubed smoked turkey sausage {Check for Gluten}
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese


1. Bring 2 cups water, milk, salt, and thyme to a boil in a large saucepan. Gradually stir in farina; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. While farina cooks, heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage, and cook 3 minutes or until browned, stirring frequently. Remove from pan; set aside, and keep warm. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil to pan; add onion and bell pepper. Sauté 5 minutes or until onion begins to brown. Stir in garlic and crushed red pepper; sauté 15 seconds. Remove from heat. Stir in sausage and remaining 1/4 cup water, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
