For the Steamed Rice:

  1. Start by rinsing your rice and then steam the rice with the water in a rice steamer or a covered pot.

  2. Slice the turkey sausage into 1/2 inch slices. Sauté the turkey sausage in a pan on medium high heat until you start to see browning on both sides as you toss them around.

  3. Add one can of the beans into the pan where you sautéed the sausage. With an immersion blender, puree the beans with the chicken stock, onion and garlic powders, salt and sugar until smooth.

  4. Now add in the second can of rinsed beans. Let it come to a boil. Simmer for 20 minutes.

  5. Serve over the steamed rice layered with the bean mixture and topped with the turkey sausage. You can also mix the sausage into the beans. Serve warm.
