  3. Add garlic and Cajun seasoning and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, for 30 seconds.
  4. Cook, stirring to coat the vegetables, until softened, about a minute.
  5. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to release their juices, about 2 minutes.
  6. Stir in broth, cover, increase heat to high and bring to a boil.
  7. Return the sausage to the pan, along with okra and cauliflower rice; reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until the okra is heated through and the rice is tender, about 10 minutes.
