Ingredients

  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 lean turkey sausages cut into circles
  • 1/2 sweet onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 orange bell pepper diced
  • 1 12 oz package of cauliflower rice
  • 1 19 oz can red kidney beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes drained
  • 2 tbsp cajun seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Hot sauce for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Heat the olive oil over medium high heat and add the sausage bits. Cook just until lightly browned, about 1-2 minutes per side and set aside.
  • Add the onion and garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant and soft.
  • To a lightly greased 13x9" casserole dish, add the cooked sausage, onions, garlic, cauliflower rice (still frozen), bell peppers, kidney beans, diced tomatoes (without the juice), cajun seasoning and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Mix to combine and break up any cauliflower rice chunks. Press lightly down.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the cauliflower rice is tender and hot, and the sausage is cooked through.
