Sausage & Shrimp
Makes 4 cups
4 ounces smoked chicken or turkey
andouille sausage*
8 ounces shrimp, peeled, deveined, cut in
half lengthwise
Cooking spray
1 teaspoon good quality olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
3 tablespoons chopped green bell pepper
(1/4-inch chop)
3 tablespoons chopped red bell pepper
(1/4-inch chop)

1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1-3/4 cups (standard liquid measure) chicken
3/4 cup tomato sauce
1 bay leaf
3 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley

Cut sausage into 1/2-inch slices. Lightly coat the
interior of the steamer tray with cooking spray.
Place the sausage and shrimp into the steaming
tray; reserve.
Insert the Rice Cooking Bowl into the Cuisinart
Rice Cooker. Place the olive oil in the Rice Cooker
Bowl, cover, and turn on for 1 minute. Add the
onions, celery, green and red peppers, and garlic;
stir to coat with oil. Cover and cook 3 to 4 minutes.
Stir in the rice, thyme, and chili powder. Stir until
rice is opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chicken
stock and tomato sauce; tuck in the bay leaf. Cover
and cook for 10 minutes. Place the filled steaming
tray on the Rice Cooking Bowl; cover. Continue to
cook until Rice Cooker switches to “Warm”, 8 to 10
minutes longer. Let stand at “Warm” for 5 minutes.
Remove and discard bay leaf. Gently toss rice
mixture with steamed shrimp and sausage. Add
half the parsley and toss to combine. Transfer to
a warmed bowl to serve. Sprinkle with remaining
chopped parsley. Serve with hot sauce if desired.
*Smoked chicken or turkey andouille sausage has
much less fat than traditional pork andouille. It can
be found in many well-stocked grocery stores.
Smoked turkey kielbasa can be substituted.

and turn on; cooking time will be about 12-18 min-
utes. When unit switches to “Warm”, Cinnamon
Raisin Oatmeal is ready to serve, or it may be kept
