  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, or to taste
  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice

  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

  1. Heat the olive oil in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium heat. Stir in the sausage, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the onion, bell pepper, and celery; season with salt and Cajun seasoning. Cook and stir until the vegetables are soft, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the rice until evenly coated in the vegetable mixture, then pour in the tomatoes with juice, garlic, chicken broth, bay leaves, and thyme leaves. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.
