Cheap, quick and easy!  Who doesn’t love a good One Pot Wonder?!

Meet Jambalaya.

Sausages, vegies and rice.  Cook it all in one pot and feed the family for a couple of bucks.

Traditionally, Jambalaya is a spicy Southern Style rice dish, made with sausage, pork or chicken, and shrimp.

In this adaption, we used Spicy Jalapeno and Cheese sausages we picked up on sale (marked down to half price $3.45)

We also left out the onion (as I’m fructose intolerant) and added carrots, and a packet of Cauliflower and Broccoli Rice (also picked up at 50% off).

Add 1 &1/2 cups of rice and some chicken stock and simmered on low until the rice is cooked through!


Traditional Jambalaya.

  • 6x Spicy / Flavoured Sausages – like chorizo for example (browned and diced)
  • 1x Chicken Breast (brown and diced) and / or 500g prawns
  • 1x onion diced
  • 3x celery stalks diced
  • 1x green capsicum diced
  • 1 cup of uncooked rice
  • 2-3 cups of Chicken Stock
  • Creole Seasoning (Paprika, Cayene pepper, Oregano, Thyme)

Brown the meat.

Brown the onion, celery and capsicum in a little oil.

Add the meat back in.

Add spices.

Stir in the rice and 2 cups of chicken stock.

Simmer on a low heat until vegetables are soft and rice is cooked through.  Add more stock if required.
