Low Carb Jambalaya

Low Carb Jambalaya

Morgan Mallory

"A jambalaya for the low-carb and paleo crowd. It's rice free, with extra veggies to make up the volume. Just as delicious and flavorful as traditional jambalaya, without the insulin spike!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and andouille sausage and cook and stir until the onion starts to brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Mix in crushed tomatoes, green bell peppers, zucchinis, Cajun seasoning, hot sauce, and chicken broth; bring mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook uncovered until the liquid cooks off and the mixture is thick, about 15 minutes. Stir in chicken and shrimp and simmer until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's note:
  • For best flavor, use fresh gulf shrimp and andouille, but frozen shrimp or pre-cooked shrimp from your supermarket's seafood counter also work well in this recipe. If you can't find andouille sausage, a flavorful smoked pork sausage is a good substitute.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Really great! Added riced cauliflower for that familiar look and texture, plus it snuck in another vegetable for the kids as they pick out the peppers. Very delicious!
