To help celebrate Mardi Gra, we made up some Jambalaya! It was delicious, and easy. We accompanied our jambalaya with a Cajun baked sweet potato. Ooh, we’re spoiled.
butter for melting
1 medium onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
sausage (I buy sausage from Niman Ranch as it’s pastured/deeply bedded pins)
1 teaspoon each: paprika, oregano, thyme
2 tablespoons parsley
2 cups bone broth
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup tomato paste
1/2 – 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 cup soaked cooked rice, wild or brown OR riced cauliflower
Melt butter in deep skillet (everything will go in here). Over medium-high heat cook the onion, pepper, and garlic until just tender. Add sausage and cook approximately 3 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients except rice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer for 15 minutes. Add the rice just long enough to heat through.
If you like your Cajun food a bit spicier, add some cayenne or hot pepper sauce.
