Keto Jambalaya

My kids and husband love eating this keto meal. My kids eat the jambalaya with rice but I notice that they usually just eat the jambalaya on top. If you are a ketotarian or vegetarian you can substitute the sausage and chicken for shrimp, or leave it out all together. This recipe feeds four easily.

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken thighs cubed
  • 1 package of andouille or hot sausage
  • slicedRed pepper -choppedYellow pepper -
  • - yellow chopped
  • 2 ribs Celery chopped
  • 1 package of frozen cauliflower rice
  • Green onion for garnish
  • As much minced garlic as you normally like
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • Stock, chicken or vegetable use 1/2 can
  • 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil for cooking
  1. Steam the cauliflower, drain and season with salt.
  2. Add oil to a large pan and cook the chicken and sausage on medium high heat for ten minutes, let each side cook undisturbed and get browned, and release their juices, turning only once or twice- don’t fuss with it. Remove from the pan and put on a plate or bowl.
  3. Add peppers and yellow onion and celery to the same pan and cook until softened about 5-7 minutes on medium heat. Add oil if you need more.
  4. Add cauliflower back in with the veggies in the pan and cook letting it get browned lightly and then add ½ cup of stock and tomatoes and bring to a simmer, do not add too much stock or it will become a yummy soup and not jambalaya!
  5. Taste it, then add seasoning, salt and pepper and oregano do a taste test again. Return chicken and sausage, and the juices back to the pan and finish cooking until all is incorporated for about 5-7 minutes on a low simmer. Cover the pan with a lid. Serve in bowls and top with chopped green onions
