Ingredients

    1 cup long-grain wild rice
    1 pound mild italian sausage, casings discarded
    2 green bell peppers, chopped
    One 10-ounce package white mushrooms, sliced
    1 red onion, chopped

Directions

In a large saucepan, bring 2 cups water, the rice and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil. Cover the pan, lower the heat and simmer until tender, about 40 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes; fluff with a fork. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil and the sausage and cook, breaking up the meat, until browned, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to the rice. Return the skillet to the heat and add 1 more tablespoon olive oil, the bell peppers, mushrooms and onion. Season with salt and pepper and cook until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add the veggies to the sausage and rice and toss.

  • Okay, this sounds great but I think it needs a little tweaking for it to be healthier.I am thinking of using turkey sausage, and cut the olive oil in half omitting one full tablespoon.This will lower the fat and calories and still allow for the great flavor.Congrats on making the RR magazine!!! - 8/2/11
