Today I made something from 1/2 sausage link, white rice, crushed tomatoes, garlic, onion, garlic chives, Mexican gray squash, collards, Tabasco sauces and spices.
I started off by browning the rice in butter. When the rice just about as brown as I wanted it I added the chopped onion and garlic. I let that cook for about 3 minutes or so.
Added crush tomatoes. (note: when adding tomatoes it might be good to remove from heat. I had tomato splatter since the skillet was so hot.) I added water to compensate for the rice and the dehydrated vegetables I was adding.
allowed it to simmer until the rice was done.
I am happy to report that although this dish does not have a name it is tasty. The only thing I would change with the ingredients is I would put less collards in it as it has a strong collard flavor. I don't mind that much as I do enjoy collards but I will admit it is a bit much.
So if you can come up with a jazzy name for my new dish let me hear it. If I like it I'll use it.
Added note: It would be really good with garlic bread or toast. I didn't think of that until after I had already eaten. I'll let you know how it taste after it has had a night for the spices to sit in.
