Tasty Tuesday – Smoked Sausage, Tomatoes and Okra Skillet

I know, I know, another recipe featuring sausage. You guys are probably getting tired of them. But these are literally turning into my favorite meal. They’re easy, usually one pot, I can load them up with delicious vegetables, and they’re so colorful. Plus they just taste so good!

I made this on Sunday night and my fiance took it to work on Monday. I was genuinely excited that he brought some home uneaten so I can eat it for lunch today.


Alright, first of all, slice the sausage and chop a green pepper. Gather other ingredients like diced tomatoes and chick peas. Chick peas are my new favorite food. This recipe didn’t even call for them, it called for corn. I thought they would be a nice complement to it and I was right. Also, start cooking the rice.


Cook the sausage and green pepper. My favorite part about these meals is that they have all different ingredients, but they all cook the same. Infinitely customizable.


Once the sausage is browned and the peppers have wilted a bit, add everything else in. I bought frozen okra because the recipe said I could, and I’ve never cooked it before so already chopped and frozen is a great way to incorporate something new.

The recipe says to serve over rice, but I prefer just mixing it all up in there. You get a much more varied bite instead of an unbalanced ratio of rice to everything else.

Love this, it’s going on the list of favorites for sure! To try it out for yourself, find the full recipe (with corn) here. Don’t get me wrong, I love corn, especially on the cob, but warmed up in recipes it just turns me off. Especially when I think about the fact that corn chowder exists. Just the name grosses me out.
