My friend Alberto Ferreira has a nick name I like to call him of the Rice Master, because he comes up with all kinds of different ways to make rice dishes sing.
Tonight he cooked sweet Italian sausage, onion, sweet green peppers, minced garlic, and sauteed them in a medium-size skillet.
I wouldn’t have believed so many kinds of cuisines could mix together in the same dish and blend harmoniously, but they do.
He cooked about a cup of sliced carrots in a small pot if boiling water, until they were tender.
In a rice cooker he added:
2 cups of long grain rice
3 cups of water
1 teaspoon Delish brand curry powder 1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon Mrs. DASH CHIPOTLE SEASONING
1/4 TEASPOON Badia Complete Seasoning
1 or 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
He added all the sautéed vegetables, the cooked and drained carrots, and sauteed cooked Italian sausage to the rice cooker, and then it was set for 20 minutes.
