We love one pot dishes because it means there’s not much washing up to be done after dinner, which is great. We also love hearty dishes that are healthy & can be adapted easily. Basically, what we’re trying to say is, we love Jambalaya & we’re pretty confident you will too!

Ingredients
Method

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large white onion (finely chopped)
  • 3 cloves garlic (finely sliced or minced)
  • 2 cups celery (chopped to 1 cm pieces)
  • 2 red chillies (deseeded & finely chopped)
  • 4 cups tomatoes (roughy chopped)
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 cups brown rice (washed but uncooked)
  • 3 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 4 or 5 cups vegetable stock
  • Hot sauce (to taste)
  • 1 cup cilantro (finely chopped)

Garnish

  • Hot sauce
  • Cilantro

Method

  1. 1.

    Warm the vegetable oil in a pan.

  2. 2.

    Add the onions & cook them until they’re translucent.

  3. 3.

    Add the garlic & cook it until you’ve released the aroma.

  4. 4.

    Add the celery & red chillies & cook cook them until the celery has softened slightly.

  5. 5.

    Add the tomatoes & stir them until they’re well warmed through.

  6. 6.

    Add the tomato puree & stir that into the mixture.

  7. 7.

    Add the brown rice, smoked paprika, bay leaves, pepper, vegetable stock into the pan & stir it all round so everything is well covered in liquid.

  8. 8.

    Add the hot sauce (we like spicy food so we added loads - you don’t have to go overboard if you’re not that keen on spicy food).

  9. 9.

    Bring the mixture to the boil, give it a quick stir then reduce the heat to a very gentle simmer (very gentle indeed).

  10. 10.

    Put the lid on the pan & let the Jambalaya simmer for 35 - 40 minutes (make sure you stir it roughly every 5 minutes so it doesn’t burn on to the bottom of the pan, but don’t stir to aggressively - you don’t want your rice to be mushy).

  11. 11.

    Take the lid off the pan, fold in the cilantro & remove the bayleaves.

  12. 12.

    Serve immediately with a garnish of hot sauce & a spring of cilantro.
