Dinner: Okra & Sausage

An easy one-pot meal:

Start with three Sante Fe Chicken Sausage links (about 12 ounces).  Peel off the casing.  Saute with half of a red onion, diced, in a splash of olive oil.  Add one diced sweet red pepper and one pound of okra, sliced into 3/4" pieces.  Season with salt and pepper and maybe some tomato powder if you have it. Saute a couple minutes.  Then add 1/4 cup water or broth, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer approximately 20 minutes.  Stir in 2 cups leftover cooked rice* and one clove of garlic, minced, in the last five minutes of cooking. Serves 4.

Super simple.  Easy clean up.  Autumn-appropriate comfort food utilizing summer's bounty.

*Don't have any leftover rice?  This would be great spooned over hot-from-the-oven cornbread.
