Vegetable Jambalaya
Print Recipe
Jambalaya is one of the most celebrated dishes of Louisiana. Similar to Spain's paella, Jambalaya was originally created as a way to use up leftovers. Don't wait for leftovers, though, to enjoy this delicious fusion of flavors! Jambalaya is traditionally served with a side of greens and cornbread (and includes chunks of cooked chicken, ham and Andouille sausage). In a hurry? Save 20 minutes prep time by cooking the rice a day ahead and adding it to the pot when you add the okra and tomatoes.
