Shrimp-and-Sausage Jambalaya

Many Cajun and Creole dishes are seasoned with the so-called holy trinity--bell pepper, onion, and celery. This Creole-style jambalaya has lots of tomato in it.
                       Makes 6 to 8 servings

2    tablespoons vegetable oil
1    pound andouille or other spicy smoked sausage, sliced
1    large onion, diced
1    bell pepper, diced
3    celery ribs, chopped
4    garlic cloves, minced
2    bay leaves
1    teaspoon dried thyme
1    teaspoon dried oregano
2    teaspoons Creole seasoning
1    (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, with juice
4    cups chicken broth
2    cups uncooked long-grain rice
1    pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
4    green onions, chopped

1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage, and cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon; set aside.

2. Add onion and next 7 ingredients to hot drippings in Dutch oven; sauté 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in reserved sausage, tomatoes, broth, and rice. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, 25 minutes or until rice is tender.

3. Stir in shrimp; cover and cook 5 minutes or until done. Sprinkle each serving with green onions.
Heart healthy


  1. We all love jambalaya, with the exception of Mister fussy pants (Brian). This recipe sounds very tasty.
    Nana has decided she hates chicken and beef. So I am getting more restricted on what I can serve her. She might eat this one if I cut back a bit on the Creole spices.
    Thanks PIC
    Luv and happy thoughts
