Why We Like It

WOWZA!  This version of jambalaya is CRAZY GOOD!  We are still thinking about it and can't wait to make it again!  It is an excellent way to use okra or any veggies that are anxiously waiting in your refrigerator or garden.  This will come together really quick if your rice is cooked ahead of time.

Cook the Rice:

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

If rice is not already cooked, go ahead and use 1 cup of uncooked rice and cook according to package directions.  This may make more rice than you need for this recipe, and then there are so many ways to use the extra!

Cook the Vegetables:

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup zucchini (chopped)
  • 1 cup red bell pepper (chopped, or combination of red and orange peppers)
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion (chopped)

Place oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add vegetables and cook about 5 minutes or until vegetables are beginning to get tender.

Make the Seasoning:

  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne red pepper (or adjust to your level of kick)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt (or more to taste)

Place in a small bowl and stir.  Set aside.

Cook the Sausage and Okra:

  • 3 sausage links (chicken or turkey sausage, sliced)
  • 1 1/2 cups okra (ends trimmed and sliced)

Add to the skillet with the vegetables.  Add 1/2 of the seasoning mixture and stir to combine.  Cook for about 8 minutes until sausage is cooked through and okra is soft.

Put it all together:

  • 2 tsp low sodium soy sauce

Add the cooked rice, remaining seasoning and soy sauce to the skillet and stir.  Cook about 3 minutes until heated through.

Serve and enjoy!
