A jambalaya for the low-carb and paleo crowd. It's rice free, with extra veggies to make up the volume. Just as delicious and flavorful as traditional jambalaya, without the insulin spike!

Mix in crushed tomatoes, green bell peppers, zucchinis, Cajun seasoning, hot sauce, and chicken broth; bring mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook uncovered until the liquid cooks off and the mixture is thick, about 15 minutes.

I have not made this yet but will very soon, looks great!! Just wanted to mention to J Wurtman, don't give a low rating to a low carb dish for having too much protein and not enough carb. There is never a "good time of year" to carb load. Seek recipes that are not paleo or low carb. It sounds like you didn't make the recipe after all so you should not even review it.

This is absolutely yummo. I am tired of the same old low carb meals and thought this looked good. It was beyond good! Unfortunately for me, the low carb didn't mean much because I went back for a second huge bowl so still had way too many calories. If you like Jambalaya, you will love this. I didn't have any shrimp so had to omit them ( Did not want to go to go to the store). Also, I had no Cajun spice so I made my own using a recipe from this site. That too was really good. This is a keeper. My husband loved it too. I will use this in future even for a non low carb and will use this recipe but just add rice to the pan (brown or white) and let it cook while it's simmering. This is in my recipe box and I will definitely use it again and again. Thank you Malory.
