Lacho – Hungarian sausage and rice

This is a dish that I crave every year when I go to my local farmers market and see all of the ripe delicious hot house tomatoes! It truly captures all of the essence and flavor in a fresh ripe tomato while contributing a spicy kick from cubanelle peppers and a jalapeño.

What you’ll need:

2-4 large ripe hot house tomatoes (in season is best) cubed

1 large cubanelle cut into rings

1 small jalepeno cut into rings

1 onion cut into half rings

1 package Hillshire turkey kielbasa cut into slightly diagonal disks

1 cup cooked white or brown rice

2 big tablespoons of paprika 

1 tablespoon butter

Drizzle of olive oil

Salt 2 tsp and then too taste

  1. Heat your olive oil and butter on medium/high heat. Add paprika, salt, peppers and onion. Sautée until tender and fragrant. 
  2. Add kielbasa and cook until it has a nice glaze 
  3. Add tomatoes. Cook for about 10 minutes before lowering heat. 
  4. Tomatoes should cook down to make a good amount of sauce. Add 1/2 cup of water.
  5. Dump in rice and stir. Remove promptly from heat. Serve immediately. You don’t want the rice to soak up all the sweet and spicy tomato broth.
  6. Enjoy with a glass of wine under the summer stars
