Low Carb Jambalaya

This low carb jambalaya recipe is absolutely delicious. It comes together fast but does require a little simmering time. The rice is replaced with cauliflower rice in this recipe. This was another winner with the family. As always, make sure you season to taste for your family’s likes.

Check the sausage nutritional info and make sure it doesn’t have added sugars. I usually get mine from Aldi and it fits in nutritionally.
You can add canned crab to this or chicken. You can even add in some crawfish if you want. I kept it simple and easy here. Also, my family isn’t as adventurous as I am when it comes to food. They will all eat the sausage and shrimp version but that’s about as far as all of them will go. This is a great addition to your monthly rotation. Sorry for the lack of pictures. I almost didn’t get a picture of this before we ate dinner.
