I love a dish that can be adapted, and this one is just that; add your protein of choice (maybe I’ll add some chicken in next time), and watch the spicy and savory flavors meld together so nicely. Make it even more guilt-free by making a garlic-y cauliflower rice to serve it with!

    Tried the jambalaya recipe and it was absolutly amazing, can’t wait to make it again!!!
    The only little add on I did was in the califlower rice, I added 3/4 tsp of sesame seed oil.
    Thanks for this great idea, will try the other recipe for sure.
