  • 16 ounces All-Natural Andouille Sausage, or sausage of your choice (I used Turkey sausage)
  • 1 1/2 cups rice - white or brown
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 medium green bell peppers, chopped
  • 4 ribs celery, diced
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 (16 ounce) can BUSH’S® Dark Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper, to taste



Step 1

Cut the sausage into coins and browned them in the Ninja on Stove Top High. Set aside. Turn your Ninja to Stove Top Medium and heat oil. Add the onion and sauté for 5 - 7 minutes, or until tender. Add the garlic, celery, green bell peppers, Cajun seasoning and thyme and sauté for 2 more minutes. Set aside. Add rice and about 3 cups chicken broth. Bring to boil, and turned down to Stove Top Low. The rice will need extra liquid in the Ninja. You may need to turn it back up to Stove Top Medium, if the rice still has a little bit of a "crunch." Check every 5 minutes or so and add liquid if needed (this also helps to ensure the bottom won’t burn.) When there is about 5 minutes left in cooking add the sliced sausage, kidney beans, the sautéed vegetable mixture, and the green onions. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.
