DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a 2 quart saucepan; Fry linguica, seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Add onions and garlic, sauteeing until onions are tender and translucent; be careful not to burn the garlic.
  • Add water, tomato paste, and bay leaves, stirring until the tomato paste is dissolved. Add lima beans and rice, stirring to combine; bring to a boil on high temperature
  • When it is boiling, turn to medium low heat and cover, cooking 20-30 minute
  • Check occasionally, stir to avoid sticking, lowering the heat a smidge further if needed; rice should be fairly dry when cooked completely.
  • Remove the bay leaves before serving.
  • NOTE: if you'd like to lower the fat a little, try Gaspar's turkey linguica, it's sold in the same section as the kielbasa, chorizo, etc.
  • NOTE: Can this be done with brown rice? I don't know -- but if some kind soul is willing to try, please post a review with your results!
