 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • 1 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp lemon pepper
  • 10 ounces sausage, uncooked
  • 2 TBSP olive oil


Add bell pepper, onion, and celery to a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until veggies have softened. Add in rice and stir for 30 seconds. Pour in broth. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat to simmer. Stir often until cooked, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, mash kidney beans into a medium bowl, and add garlic, egg, paprika, garlic powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and lemon pepper. Set aside.
When the rice is done, transfer to the mashed beans.
Fill the saucepan with water and add the sausage. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes until sausage is cooked. Chop into small pieces and stir into bean & rice mixture.
Shape into 8 patties. Add one tablespoon oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add 4 patties to the skillet. Cook until crispy on both sides, about 5-7 minutes per side.
Repeat with remaining tablespoon of oil and patties. Enjoy!
