Sausage Stir Fry over Rice
This easy stir fry is a go-to weeknight dinner, and you can mix it up with different vegetables.
uncooked medium grain rice
or substitute rice of your choice
fully cooked sausage
any flavor you like, cut in half lengthwise and sliced into bite-sized pieces
yellow, red, or orange bell pepper
seasoned salt of your choice
(or to taste)
baby spinach leaves
Cook rice according to package directions on stovetop or in rice cooker. (Don’t forget to salt the water!)
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute sausage until starting brown, about 5 minutes.
Add bell peppers, mushrooms, and seasoned salt to the skillet, and stir fry until vegetables are tender, 5-7 minutes.
Just before serving, turn off heat and gently stir halved tomatoes and baby spinach into the stir fry so that they just wilt but don’t overcook. Serve over rice.
