Introduction

This is a low-calorie version of an awesome Cajun dish. I make it in a crock pot and look forward to it all day. This is a low-calorie version of an awesome Cajun dish. I make it in a crock pot and look forward to it all day.

Ingredients

    1 onion, chopped
    1 c celery, diced
    4 garlic cloves, minced
    2 teaspoons dried thyme (or 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, minced)
    1 bay leaf
    1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
    1/2 uncooked cup rice
    4 cups vegetable broth
    2 teaspoons paprika
    4 teaspoons lemon juice
    salt (optional)
    2 cups okra, sliced (I use frozen)
    1 green pepper, diced
    1 -2 dash hot pepper sauce (Tabasco)

Directions

1. Saute onions and celery until transparent in large frying pan. If you use oil for this (I just use a little spray), then you need to add it to the nutrition calculations. Add minced garlic. Saute another minute.

2. Add tomatoes, bring to boil from 1-2 minutes.

Transfer to large crock pot. Add rice and broth.

3. Cook on low for 6 hours - until rice is tender (OR cook on high 3 hours)

4. Mix paprika and lemon juice in small bowl. Add lemon, paprika, okra, and diced peppers to crock pot. Cook on high for 20 minutes until heated throughout.

5. Serve and enjoy!

Serves 6-8 (calculated for 7).

Optional: Adding shrimp will make this TRULY Cajun and still very diet-friendly.
