  • 1 to 2 smoky, garlicky sausages (about 100 grams)
  • 1/2 cup cubed carrot
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 4 to 6 button mushrooms sliced
  • 3/4 cup long-grain rice (I used jasmine)
  • 1 and 1/2 to 1 and 3/4 cups bone broth (rice varieties have different capacities for liquid absorption), preferably homemade
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste


  • Prepare all the ingredients first. Cut and measure the vegetables; chop the sausage.
  • Heat a microwave browning skillet on HIGH, uncovered, for one minute. Put in the sausage meat and cook on HIGH, uncovered, for one minute.
  • Add the mushrooms and carrot. Cook on HIGH for another 30 seconds. Set aside.
  • Measure the broth into a microwave-safe bowl. It should be newly boiled. Alternatively, boil in the microwave for about two minutes on HIGH.
  • Pour the rice into the hot broth.
  • Add the peas. Season with salt and pepper. Stir. Cook on HIGH for ten minutes. Uncovered.
  • The rice would be almost cooked at this point and there should still be a little broth that has not been absorbed.
  • Add the sausage meat mixture to the rice.
  • Stir. If the mixture appears too dry, add a few tablespoonfuls of hot broth.
  • Return to the microwave and cook, covered this time, for five minutes on MEDIUM. Leave in the microwave without removing the cover for another five minutes.
  • Fluff up the rice with a spoon and serve.
