Ingredients:

  • One spicy/hot turkey sausage, chopped
  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 1/4 cup wild/brown rice
  • 4 sweet peppers, chopped

(To make this a ‘real’ jambalaya you can add shrimp – I just did not have any on hand)

Cook your rice.

For this small of an amount, I just put the rice in a microwave safe container with 1/2 cup of water for 10 minutes. Stir at the 5 minute mark. Make sure the container is larger than you think you need as the water will boil over.

Put a medium size pot on med-high heat with a little bit of olive oil.

Once hot, add the onion, peppers, & garlic until aromatic.

Add sausage to pot (& shrimp if you are using it).

Add rice (&any extra water) to pot once finished in microwave.

Remove from heat & serve once sausage is fully cooked.

Ta-Da, you’ve got healthy jambalaya! I enjoyed this for a healthy work lunch.
