Recipe Time

Prep: 15 Minutes
Cook: 35 Minutes


1 pound andouille sausage, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 (10-oz.) package frozen vegetable seasoning blend
1 (32-oz.) container low-sodium chicken broth
1 (14.5-oz.) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes with garlic
2 cups uncooked long-grain rice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions


1. Cook sausage in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, 8 to 10 minutes or until browned. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.

2. Add vegetable seasoning blend to hot drippings in Dutch oven, and sauté 3 to 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Add broth, next 5 ingredients, sausage, and if desired, ground red pepper. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 18 to 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Top with green onions, and serve immediately.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used McKenzie's Seasoning Blend frozen vegetables and Hunt's Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes With Garlic.
