This was sooo good!! Even though we're not from the south, jambalaya was one of my mom's staple recipes and we had it at least once every 2 weeks growing up. This was my first time making it on my own and boy was it good! I did make a few changes.
I love kielbasa sausage in my jambalaya, so I took a pound of it, cut it on a bias, and sauteed it in a skillet without oil (it produces enough of its own) until browned all over. Then I removed the kielbasa and sauteed the veggies in the kielbasa-grease (I added 3 cloves of minced garlic). I didn't have canned tomatoes so I diced 4 roma tomatoes and threw them in, I ommitted the peas (didn't have any), and also threw in some diced green onion I needed to use up.
So good, so good. This would have been delicious even without all my changes. It's all about getting the spice combination right (made simple w/ cajun or creole seasoning). Thanks for sharing!
