Bratwurst & Brown Rice Dinner
Skinny Cooks

Ingredients:
5 bratwurst sausages, each punched eight times with a fork 2 cups water 2 cups brown rice 14.5-ounce can of diced tomatoes with garlic onion, and liquid 14.5-ounce can of tomatoes with okra and corn, with liquid

Instructions:
To keep from having a greasy meal I always punch my bratwursts 8 times with a fork, place them on a foil-lined baking dish and bake them at 360 degrees for 45 minutes. Place the water, brown rice, diced tomatoes and tomatoes, okra and corn with liquids into a large pot. Bring to a simmer and stir occasionally to keep the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot. If the rice starts to stick, turn down the heat and stir more often. After the bratwursts have baked 45 minutes slice them into bite-size pieces and stir them into the pot of veggies and rice. Continue simmering and stir occasionally. Youíll need to taste a few grains of rice occasionally to be sure the rice is cooked and soft to the bite. Youíll also see the rice has swelled and absorbed the liquids. Thatís how you tell when itís ready to serve. Since the liquids have mostly been absorbed, you can serve this on a flat plate instead of using a soup bowl. If you donít have enough liquid to suit you, just add some tomato juice or water while simmering for a more soup-like consistency. The amount of ingredients listed will make enough for a family meal. You can multiply the ingredients and make enough to feed an army or a football team. The leftovers can be frozen successfully and used at a later date.
