While it may seem high in sodium, SP ingredients don't take into account that we can rinse the canned beans. Its also taking into account the sausage & tomato sauce. A third your daily calories (its a meal, shouldn't it be?), about 1/2 daily sodium.. so eat less sodium throughout the day. LOVE IT
Looking forward to trying this! Try making your own sausage (or just brown turkey and add remaining to the pot).To 1-lb lean ground turk.add 3/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp rubbed sage, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp ground ginger. Instead of criticizing,why not ask for help in changing what doesn't work for you?
You extreme "health-nuts" should know right away that this is going to challenge a sodium content, etc. BUT, ya know, a little variety in life doesn't hurt. It's not like you are gonna have this dish every day! Will try it when I have some time to make it. Can it be made in crockpot?
I substuted the vegitable oil for olive oil and I think this taste is great. My son likes it a little hotter so he added some tabasco sauce to his plate after he was served. He claims it was not hot enough! Matter of taste, I guess! - 5/3/09
Thank you! Nice variety of textures, a great recipe that can be modified for individual preferences! I don't eat meat and this works just as well. Those concerned about sodium, don't use canned veggies - use fresh!
This was fabulous. I entered it into the recipe calculator because I thought the count was too high. I used less rice, and mine came out to 6 huge servings of 350 calories/serving. I will make this again and again! Oh, also used Mexican canned tomatoes (with chilies).
I made this recipe using lower sodium canned tomatoes and added my own cajun spices. Again, if sodium is an issue for you, just substitute chicken for the turkey sausages. Adjusting this recipe to suit your own dietary needs is very simple. This recipe is very flexible and excellent!
I halved the recipe and it was more than enough for 4 decent sized servings. Used Louisiana Hot Sauce instead of Tabasco and didn't have the cajun stewed tomatoes so I used plain petite diced but it came out very good all the same. We will cook this again.
Great recipe, but my rice was a little sticky because I made it earlier in the day and put it in a crockpot, plus it was not a big hit for my husband or children - unfortunely they are very hard to please. I enjoyed it and would make it again for myself.
Great ... makes a huge quantity, full of hearty ingredients. I added more water and probably used more of each main ingredient as I struggle converting ounces to grams. Family will adore left overs reheated.
this was great, i read the reviews and made changes before making to reduse the sodium, icooked my own beans day beforeand drained using no salt and my own saltfree cajun spices , i also made my own turkey sausage using hickory smoke and boneless skinless turkeyand sage no sodium, and freshh tomato
