Quinoa Jambalaya - Review by DIZ
Thank You, Jessica Collin, for getting me to like quinoa! Can’t tell you how many quinoa recipes I’ve tried, but this one did the trick. I took the suggestions under the “cook’s notes,” and added shrimp, chicken, and a few other veggies. I started by sautéing andouille sausage which is my preference in Cajun recipes. Then I added the shrimp, cooked until almost done and removed everything from the pan. Then I cooked the chicken in the same pan and removed. I added a tad more oil and sautéed the veggies with the seasonings. I went with a true trinity: onions, peppers, and celery. I didn’t have any marinara so I tossed in a couple of chopped fresh tomatoes. My jambalaya loving husband requested seconds! Quinoa might just be the new norm with this classic dish.
Quinoa jambalaya with kielbasa, sweet peppers, and sweet onion and plenty of spice is a hearty, gluten-free meal.
A nice thing to have around during the holidays, but don't expect them to stay around long. These orange-flavored cranberry cookies are tart and delicious, not to mention beautiful.
Mango, strawberries, almonds, and bacon combine into a parrothead's delight. Serve this at your next Jimmy Buffett party.
This is the BEST I have ever tasted, but not for the fat conscious.
This beef stew, richly flavored with dark beer, slowly cooks down until tender with carrots and onions. It's served on buttery cabbage mashed potatoes.
Swap spuds for cauliflower in this low-carb version of creamy potato salad complete with bacon, hard-boiled eggs, and sweet pickles.
A wonderful merging of flavors and textures! This ground beef and bulgur wheat casserole is just a little spicy and sure to warm the tummy.
Texas Sheet Cake made with peanut butter instead of chocolate! Wonderfully moist with a delicious peanut butter frosting!
This old-fashioned buttermilk cornbread with a hint of sweetness is baked in a cast-iron skillet.
