Pizza toppings and rice dinner recipe

My daughter and I are ethical vegetarians and love to experiment with meat substitutes.  We purchased a four pack of “Field Roast” Italian grain meat sausages for the grill.  They were a huge hit with vegan phobic Dad so we had to get them again.  This is our second time round with the artisan sausages and we all had a hand in the development of this delicious recipe. I’m betting this recipe would be equally delicious with traditional italian sausage, too.

1 cup rice

2 cups water

Italian sausage (12.95 oz)

1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes with juice

4oz  black olives

1 avocado, chopped

5 button mushrooms, chopped

1/3 cup parmesan cheese

Start the rice in rice cooker.  Chop sausage and add to skillet.  Brown.  Add everything else.  Simmer 5 minutes.  Turn off heat and let steam on hot burner until rice is done. The sauce will thicken as water evaporates and it cools. Serve over steamed rice.

It’s like pizza only better!
