How do I make this sausage and rice soup?

Slice the smoked turkey sausage link into bite size pieces.

Spray a skillet with non stick cooking spray. Add sausage pieces, onions, minced garlic.

Cook on medium heat until sausage, onions are golden brown. 

Add sausage mixture to slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients.

Cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Makes 8 ( 1 and 1/4 cup) servings

Ingredients: 

  • 13 oz. smoked turkey sausage link ( I use Jennie-O Hardwood Smoked Turkey Kielbasa )
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 small yellow onion
  • 1 tsp Italian seasonings ( I use Dak’s Italian Blast)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 cup long white rice or brown rice, uncooked
  • 31 oz. beef stock ( I use fat free, low sodium beef stock)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 ( 14 1/2 oz.) cans diced tomatoes, drained
  • 3 (16 oz.) cans red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • Fresh basil and 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese ( optional) 

 

Directions:

  1. Slice the smoked turkey sausage link into bite size pieces.
  2. Spray a skillet with non stick cooking spray. Add sausage pieces, onions, minced garlic.
  3. Cook on medium heat until sausage, onions are golden brown.
  4. Add sausage mixture to slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients.
  5. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. 
  6. Garnish with fresh basil or grated Parmesan cheese for additional points.

Notes:

  1. Since this recipe contains zero point foods, the Freestyle Smart Points are calculated using ONLY the items that contain points: beef stock, turkey sausage and the 1/2 cup uncooled white rice.
  2. If you try to calculate the points using the nutritional information it will not be accurate since the nutritional information contains calories and nutritional information on the zero point foods.
