Yield: three 1 + cup containers


  • 3 cups uncooked long-grain rice
  • 3 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 3 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
  • 4 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced chives
  • 1 tablespoon dried celery flakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme


  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients.
  2. Divide evenly among three airtight containers (there will be a little over 1 cup in each container).
  3. Store in a dry, cool place for up to 6 months.


In a saucepan, bring 2 cups water and 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper to a boil. Stir in one portion of the dried mix; return to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender.

In another saucepan, heat 8 ounces of tomato sauce and 1 pound of fully cooked, smoked sausage that has been cut into 1/4 inch slices.

Meanwhile, in another saucepan, cook 1 pound of medium-size, peeled, de-veined shrimp in water until pink and cooked through. Drain. Stir shrimp into sausage mixture. Spoon rice onto plates and spoon the sausage-shrimp mixture on top.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
