This is a quick and easy dish I made for dinner last night. OK, so maybe
it's not "real" Cajun jambalaya (no s*us*ge or s**f**d), but it's very
yummy and leaves lots of room for experimentation. I adapted this from
Simply Delicious, a recipe club I used to belong to.
1 cup onions, chopped
1 cup green peppers, chopped
1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 cups water or stock
1 15-oz. can tomatoes, undrained, chopped
1 cup rice
1 tsp. salt (opt.)
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/8 tsp. allspice
1 15oz. can kidney beans or black beans
1/2 cup frozen peas
chopped green onions, to taste
chopped fresh parsley, to taste
Place onions, green peppers, celery and garlic in a medium saucepan and saute
about 5 minutes. Add the water or stock, tomatoes, rice, salt, basil, thyme,
chili powder and allspice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer
about 20 minutes (more if you use brown rice).
About 5 minutes before the rice is done, add the beans, peas and green onions.
Simmer until the rice is done and peas are heated through. Top with parsley
and serve. Makes about 4 servings.
