Monday Night Munching

Monday evening is a relaxing night in our house. We tend to over do it at the weekends and Monday night is when we like to relax and maybe catch up on some programmes (Game of Thrones anyone)

Oh John Snow what will I do without you until next year 
  
Dinner tends to run to minimal input, one pot, comfort food. I had some sausages left out from a BBQ at the weekend and wanted to use them up so I decided on my version of Gordon Ramsay's Spicy Sausage Rice with some garlic bread. I have made this before using a range of sausage flavours but this week I had gluten free smokies from presidents choice. The flavour was by far the best of all my attempts. A little bit smoky a little bit spicy. Delicious! 
 
Gluten Free Spicy Sausage Rice
 
Spicy Sausage Rice
 
1 tsp Olive oil
1 onion, peeled and sliced
1/2 each red/green/yellow pepper, deseeded and chopped
1 tbsp Garlic Puree
5 spiced sausages, e.g. Italian chilli,chorizo,
1 heaped tsp smoked paprika
1 cup Jasmin rice
1/2 cup white wine
500ml chicken stock
4 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
1 tomato, chopped
Small bunch of flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
 
Add a glug of oil to a heavy-based pan and fry the onion for 5 minutes until soft. Add the pepper and garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
 
Depending on the sausages you use you can either slice the sausage and add it to the pan or slit the sausage skins and crumble the sausage meat into the pan, then cook over a medium heat for 4–5 minutes until coloured. Add the smoked paprika and mix. Season to taste.
 
Add the rice and stir well to mix thoroughly and absorb the flavor. Deglaze the pan by pouring in the white wine and scraping any bits stuck to the bottom. Add the stock and bring to a simmer. Cook gently for 20–25 minutes until the rice is tender and the liquid almost entirely absorbed.
Remove from the heat, gently fold in the spring onions, tomato and parsley and serve.
 
For the garlic bread I used a gluten free baguette I had in the freezer and I always have a tub of garlic butter on hand. 
 
A perfect one pot dinner for no fuss cooking. Have you any other sausage receipes you suggest we try. I like using simple ingredients in alternative ways. A bit of variety without breaking the bank.
