This can be made healthy! Alright, maybe it's not "authentic", but this recipe does great with less salt, brown rice, and some turkey sausage. I basically followed the recipe, but made the above substitutions. I used homemade Cajun seasoning that has very little salt. It's just 1 T salt, 1 T oregano, 1 T paprika, 1 T cayenne pepper, and 1 T black pepper. I put in a full tablespoon of this and it was super spicy. I liked it, but the kids were a little overwhelmed. No one missed the salt. Next time, I'll use a little less of the Cajun. Also, I used rinsed canned small red beans because I've had no luck with dry beans. And finally, who still cooks their rice on the stove top?? You can cook brown rice in 30 minutes- 1 C rice, 3 C water, 10 minutes on high, 20 minutes on half power. No watching, no stirring, and no rice stuck to a pot. It may not be authentic Louisiana, but it's become our healthy family version!
