Jambalaya is a ridiculously easy weeknight meal that I make once awhile during the winter. It probably doesn’t even warrant a post, but I just wanted to throw the idea out there in case you have never made it before. This recipe uses a box of Zatarains Jambalaya mix, but I like to change a few things up from their recommendation to make it a bit more healthy. Once you are done cutting up the vegetable and meat, you throw it into the rice mix and let it cook. Some days you just need something that easy!
-1 box Zatarains Reduced-Sodium Jambalaya mix
-2 and 1/2 cups water
-2 tablespoons olive oil
-13 oz turkey polska kielbasa links, sliced into 1/4 inch pieces
-1 green pepper, diced
Mix the water and olive oil in a Dutch Oven. Bring to a boil. Add the Jambalaya mix, kielbasa, and green pepper. Mix well.
Return to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
