Ingredients
  

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil , separated
  • 1/2 pound (8 ounces) veggie or chicken sausages , sliced
  • 1 large onion , chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers , seeded and minced
  • 3 stalks celery , chopped
  • 1 large green bell pepper , chopped
  • 1 zucchini squash , diced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes , no salt added
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 can kidney beans , rinsed and drained
  • 1 can black-eyed peas , rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 cup brown rice
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper , to taste

Instructions
 

  • Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of canola oil over medium heat in large pot. Brown sliced sausage, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Set aside, draining on paper towels.
  • Return pot to burner. Add remaining oil and sauté onion, garlic, peppers, and celery until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients and bring to boil. Reduce heat, and simmer with lid 3/4 of the way covered (vented) until liquid is absorbed, about 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Add sausage during last 15 minutes of cooking.
  • Adjust seasoning as needed (I like an extra couple dashes of cayenne to kick up the heat!), and serve hot.
