Smoked Sausages with Black Bean and Cilantro Rice


This easy dish comes together in less than 30 minutes. Although cilantro is a key ingredient to add flavor to the rice, you may substitute chopped parsley or chives if you are unable to eat cilantro.

Serves 4-6

Smoked Sausages with Black Bean and Cilantro Rice
  1. 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or canola oil, divided
  2. 1 cup diced onion, about 1 small onion
  3. 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  4. 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 cup rice
  7. 2 cups water (or more as needed, see Notes)
  8. 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  9. 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  10. 1 package Prairie Grove Farms Smoked Uncured Sausage (4 links)
  1. Add 2 tablespoons of the oil to a medium saucepan and heat over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the cumin, coriander, salt, and rice and stir together for about 30 seconds. Add the water, cover, and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 20-30 minutes. Stir in the black beans and most of the cilantro, reserving about a tablespoon for garnish. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside to stay warm.
  4. Add the remaining oil to a medium skillet over medium high heat and then add the sausages and cook, uncovered, until browned, about 3 minutes per side.
  5. Pour the black beans and rice into a casserole dish and top with the cooked sausage. Garnish with remaining cilantro and serve immediately.
  1. Different types of rice cook differently, so be sure to adjust the amount of water and cooking time according to the package directions.
