From Mark's Daily Apple - A primal twist on a classic Louisiana Creole dish. It includes three kinds of meat and a bunch of veggies that are all brought together in a savory tomato sauce. And of course it wouldn?t be Primal if we included the traditional rice, so we used pulverized cauliflower as a rice substitution.

Recipe Ingredients for Primal Jambalaya

2 c Chicken, breast, cut into bite-size pieces
1 lb andouille sausage, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup onion, chopped
1 large bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced crushed
14 1/2 oz diced tomatoes, undrained
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/2 tsp dried leaf thyme

Recipe Directions for Primal Jambalaya

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and lightly cook the sausage and chicken over medium heat.

  3. Transfer items from the frying pan into a large pot.

  4. Add diced tomatoes, chicken broth, thyme, parsley and chili powder and bring to a simmer.

  5. While the mixture is simmering (you?ll want to let it go for about 20 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally), place the cauliflower in a food processor and shred until it becomes the consistency of rice.

  6. Add the cauliflower ?rice? to the mixture and simmer for another 15 minutes until tender.

  7. Add shrimp and simmer for another 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and adjust other spices as needed. Serve piping hot. Serves 6.
