"This is rice with a kick. It is best served with Cajun chicken or another Cajun dish. You will love how this complements your main dish; however, because this rice contains some meat, it can be eaten alone. Enjoy!"

  1. Bring 1 1/2 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan, and stir in the brown rice. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 40 to 50 minutes. Set the rice aside.
  2. Place ground turkey into a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir the turkey until the meat gives up some of its fat, 2 to 3 minutes; stir in green bell pepper, onion, and minced garlic. Cook and stir until the turkey is crumbly and no longer pink and the vegetables are tender, 5 to 8 more minutes. Drain excess grease, if necessary. Stir in the cooked brown rice, garlic powder, celery flakes, Cajun seasoning, black pepper, and 1/3 cup water.
  3. Bring the mixture to a simmer, and cook until the liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and additional black pepper, if desired.

This was pretty good. I ended up doubling the cajun seasoning and adding 1/2 teaspoon of salt because it seemed bland.

I made this for my granddaughter. She thought it was very good!

I liked this, it created a perfect base to add whatever other seasonings and spices desired. Instead of the celery flakes, I put two stalks of celery in the food processor and chopped them very ...

Served this alongside Blackened Salmon Po' Boys found on another site. I omitted the turkey and took the advice of other reviewers and doubled the cajun seasoning, but I thought it was just a b...

I sauteed chicken livers in some butter...then added the veggies - I used chopped celery instead of the flakes. I ended up adding a bit of cayenne pepper...and it really turned out awesome!!

Yummy side for our Fat Tuesday work party. Our group liked that it was something different than the standard red beans and rice, and that it was something the South Beach dieters could enjoy as ...

Loved this recipe for dirty rice. I chose it because it used ground turkey and I had some on hand. The only thing I changed was using about an 1" long piece of minced celery that I added to the ...

I used a half pound of ground turkey sausage and a half pound of ground turkey!
