  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1 cup mushrooms washed and sliced
  • 2 pre cooked sausages slices (I used pepperoni, but you can use your favorite kind of sausage)
  • 2 cups long grain rice
  • 4 1/2 cups vegetable juice or tomato juice
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Preheat olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Pretend there's a photo of that here. 
  2. 2. Take your chopped onions and peppers and throw them into the pot. Saute 5-ish minutes.
  3. 3. Cut your mushrooms and sausage up and throw those into the pot too.
  5. It'll look something like this. 
  6.  4. Add in the rice and stir it around until its moist. 
  7. 5. Add in the vegetable juice, salt and pepper and stir.Make sure you cover it up! This is the brand of pots and pans I have and I love love love them. Look here and here for these pots and pans! Reduce heat to medium and lightly simmer for 30-45 minutes until the juice has been absorbed and the rice is soft. Look below for a great tip!
  8. This is what it should look like once its all done!

Recipe Notes

-You should stir the rice every 5-10 minutes to prevent sticking and burning! It also helps things cook evenly.

-Also, in the last 10 minutes of cooking, stir the pot and turn the burner off leaving the lid on. This will loosen up any stuck rice on the bottom of the pot as well as finish cooking the rice completely.
