    Used chicken andouille sausage and bone in, skin on chicken thighs. Reduced the cayenne pepper to 1/2 tsp and the broth to 2 cups. Didn’t have tomato purée, so used keto catsup. Turned out very, very tasty. Served over cheese cauliflower rice

            Try roasting cauliflower rice in oven (375 10-20 min) with a little olive oil and spices. It draws some water out and improves texture exponentially.

              If you make the recipe be sure to reduce the stock by 1/2 it will turn out much better and not so liquid. Tastes great either way, but I like it more like jambalaya then soup.

                Great feedback, Do you mean only add 1/2 the stock or reduce by cooking for longer?

              The riced cauliflower made it more watery than I like, but the taste was pretty good.

              Delicious! I used a whole sachet of tomato paste, added a few stevia drops and a large teaspoon of liquid smoke. The best jambalaya I've ever made!

              It was a very nice dish! I made a following changes, mainly because I was lacking the ingredients: omitted green pepper, substituted paprika for smoke paprika and adding a few drops of liquid smoke, omitted the cauliflower rice, substituted shallot for the scallions. Then insimmered it for 20 mins to reduce the sauce little more. It was delish 👌🏻

              When do you add the onions?

              • recipewriter

                recipewriter 6 years ago

                Great catch - the onions have been removed from the ingredients as they should not have been included in the recipe. Many thanks!
