{recipe} Primal Jambalaya 

I found this recipe on Mark Sisson’s blog, Marks Daily Apple.  It is a one pot meal that packs a lot of flavor and is primal and gluten free.  I put it together within an hour while George was napping.  


2 large chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

1 lb andouille sausage, cut into ¼ inch thick slices (I used turkey andouille sausage)

1/4 cup olive oil

1 cup onion, chopped

1 large bell pepper, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced crushed

1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained

1.5 cups chicken stock

1/2 tsp dried leaf thyme

1 tbsp parsley (fresh is preferable, but dried will do in a pinch!)

1 tsp chili powder

1 large head of cauliflower

2 cups shelled, deveined and cleaned shrimp

Salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and lightly cook the sausage and chicken over medium heat. Once golden, add onion, bell pepper and garlic and sauté until onion becomes translucent. Transfer items from the frying pan into a large pot. Add diced tomatoes, chicken stock, thyme, parsley and chili powder and bring to a simmer. While the mixture is simmering (you’ll want to let it go for about 20 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally), place the cauliflower in a food processor and shred until it becomes the consistency of rice. Add the cauliflower “rice” to the mixture and simmer for another 15 minutes until tender. Add shrimp and simmer for another 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and adjust other spices as needed. Serve piping hot. Serves 6.
