One night when it was her turn to pick the meal, my youngest daughter, Maleah, told me she wanted her rice cooked in broth and that I should add ground sausage and peas. All of my girls couldn't get enough of this mixture. I added some soy sauce on mine, which made the meal taste like fried rice. My husband stirred some dairy free margarine, salt and pepper into his.
Rice with Sausage and Peas
2 cups broth
2 cups uncooked Minute rice
1-2 cups cooked bulk sausage
1 can peas
Place the broth and rice in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 8 minutes or until the rice is tender and the broth is absorbed. Stir in the sausage and peas then microwave until heated through.
My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
