Quick & Easy Dinner: Sausage Skillet
In all the hubbub yesterday with cooking and waiting for the furnace to be repaired, I totally failed to consider what we would eat for dinner tonight. Never fear! I generally have some items on hand for quick meals. Tonight I went with a simple sausage skillet that comes together in about 20 minutes.
1.5 cups of white rice
3 cups vegetable broth
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup green peas
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 package (about 8 oz.) of cubed kielbasa
salt and pepper to taste
Slice kielbasa, then cut each slice into four pieces. Cook sausage in a skillet on medium heat until cooked through. Remove sausage and set aside. Add broth to skill, and wait for the broth to boil. Add rice, onion, and garlic. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes. Fluff rice and add beans, sausage, and rice to the skillet. Mix together and cook a few more minutes, until peas are warmed through. Add salt and pepper to taste.
