Total Time:
5 min
5 min

8 servings

  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 2 cups brown rice, cooked
  • 2 cups kolbasi, kielbasa or comparable smoked sausage
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • Salt and pepper

Heat 1 tablespoon of cooking oil in saucepan over medium heat. Cook the rice according to the directions on the package. Cut the sausage into 2-inch cubes, add it to the saucepan and cook until well browned. Add the beans and their juices and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer 5 minutes. The beans should not need salt, as the sausage is salty. Season to taste with pepper. To serve, spoon the hot rice into a serving bowl and pour the sausage and bean mixture over the rice.

Love this dish! I used turkey kielbasa to save on the fat and calories. You won't miss a thing. It's delicious. Keep in mind, the brown rice takes about 45 mins to cook- do it first, then brown your kielbasa. It reheats well and I'll make it again. Also, a touch of hot sauce gives a nice kick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
