Most people think jambalaya is a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be. This dish is very simple and very easy to make once it is prepared.
This dish is high in protein and using turkey sausage lowers the fat content. So if you’re looking for a high protein meal, this is a good one. Chicken and shrimp are high in protein, as is turkey sausage. It’s an easy switch and we often do it that way.
- To make this dish low-fat and high-protein, use turkey sausage.
- If you want to keep the sugar low, pour over cauliflower rice.
- You can also use chicken sausage or broccoli rice.
Don’t be afraid to really spice it up, as this dish is best when it’s full of flavor. Chicken, shrimp and sausage go well with spices. If you serve it on top of rice, the rice will absorb the juice, so you will want plenty of seasoning. It is one article without the difference between playing an active part!
