Ingredients
  • 12   ounces 
    hot Italian turkey sausage links, removed from casings
  • 2   teaspoons 
    canola oil
  • 1   
    large onion, diced
  • 4   
    cloves garlic, minced
  • 1   teaspoon 
    Cajun seasoning
  • 2   tablespoons 
    all-purpose flour
  • 4   cups 
    chopped tomatoes
  • 4   cups 
    reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 1/2  cups 
    frozen chopped okra
  • 3/4  cup 
    instant brown rice
  • 1   bunch 
    scallions, trimmed and sliced (optional)
Directions
1.
Cook sausage in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl lined with paper towels.
2.
Return the pan to medium-high heat and add oil. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and Cajun seasoning and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add flour and cook, stirring to coat the vegetables, until the flour browns, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to release their juices, about 2 minutes. Stir in broth, cover, increase heat to high and bring to a boil.
3.
Return the sausage to the pan, along with okra and rice; reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until the okra is heated through and the rice is tender, about 10 minutes. Serve sprinkled with sliced scallions, if using.
Tips:

1.
Ingredient Note: Cajun seasoning is a spice blend that usually includes cayenne and black pepper, salt, thyme, garlic and onion powder and paprika. Look for it in the spice section of the supermarket.
2.
MAKE AHEAD TIP: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
