Cheats Sausage Jambalaya


Heat a frying pan and add a couple of sprays of rapeseed oil.  Add the onion, red pepper and sausage pieces and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Add the Mexican style rice to the frying pan with 3 tablespoons of water and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Remove from the heat and serve straight away with a little fresh parsley.



This is just as good served cold in a packed lunch

Use vegetarian sausages to make it veggie friendly!
