Camping season is around the corner, and I am sooo excited! In honor of the occasion, I made one of my favorite camping meals. Crispy Cast Iron Rice. It’s a pan full of saffron, spicy sausage, garlic, onions, and the best part–that crispy rice bottom 👌. Another reason I’m excited for this season, is we are taking our daughters backpacking for the first time!! Yikes, and yay 😆. So stay tuned for DIY dehydrated meals. You’ll want to make them! They are cheaper and taste so so SO much better. Happy trails friends ✨🏕. Crispy Cast Iron Rice
2 c of rice
3 1/4 of chicken broth
4 sausage links or 1 lb ( I used @scratchmeats Armadillo chicken sausage)
1/2 a Walla Walla sweet onion, chopped
1 clove of elephant garlic, diced
1/2 grape tomatoes
1/2 a red bell pepper
1/2 a green bell pepper
1 bunch of asparagus
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp saffron
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 of water
Olive Oil •Cook sausage and remove from pan, slice.
•Heat the pan up on medium heat, and pour enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan.
•Caramelize onions, peppers, and garlic.
•Add tomatoes and soften.
•Add rice and toast until starting to turn golden.
•Add chicken broth, spices, and sausage. Cook until a 1/4 of liquid is absorbed, the top of the rice will start to look dry.
•Pour 1/4 cup of water and top with asparagus broken up. Cover with foil so no steam escapes.
•Cook about 40-45 mins.
