This easy Louisiana classic is a traditional savory rice recipe filled with smoked sausage, bell pepper, onion, celery and creole seasoning. Perfect as a side dish, main dish, or a Southern holiday favorite!
Heat 1-2 Tbsp olive oil in large cast iron skillet or dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic. Stir while garlic lightly browns. Add onions, bell pepper and celery. Sautee until softened but not quite translucent. Add in smoked sausage. Sautee for 1-2 minutes or until sausage begins to cook.
Add in canned tomatoes and broth. Stir to remove any browned bits of sausage from the bottom of the skillet. Stir in dried herbs and spices. Add rice and stir to incorporate. Turn heat down to low, cover and let cook for 25-35 minutes or until rice is fluffy. Stir occasionally to make sure rice does not stick. There should be little no liquid left.
Remove from heat. Stir in chopped green onions and parsley and serve.
