Mediterranean Sausage Pilaf

This pilaf is made quick and easy with the use of a pressure cooker. It can be made without, but requires an additional hour of cooking before the turkey sausage and vegetables are added.
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1/3 c. wild rice
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 c. brown rice
  • 1 c. chicken broth
  • 1 lb. turkey sausage, sliced into small pieces
  • 1/2 of the leftover filling from the first recipe
  • 1 medium tomato, coarsely chopped

Bring the water to a boil in a pressure cooker. Add the wild rice and onion. Place the lid on the pressure cooker and bring to low pressure. Stabilize and cook for 10 minutes. Remove the lid by running the cooker under running water.

Add the brown rice and chicken broth. Replace the lid and bring to low pressure again. Stabilize and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow the pressure to release naturally.

Meanwhile, brown the turkey sausage lightly in a small skillet. Remove to paper towels to drain.

Add the turkey sausage, filling and tomato to the rice pilaf. Cook over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes or until the mixture is heated through. Serve warm.
