Sometimes Cajan sounds amazing right? Here’s my rendition as far as I remember! I didn’t write the ingredients down..oops, but it turned out pretty delicious…great texture, and just the right amount of spice!

Paleo Jambalaya




Package of wild caught, deveined, detailed shrimp

Andouille sausage, sliced

2-3 garlic cloves

1 bell pepper

1 onion

1 head of cauliflower

1 small can of tomato paste

1 can of diced tomatoes

1 cup of vegetable (or chicken) broth

Olive oil (for sautéing)

Salt and pepper

About a tsp of paprika

1/2 of cayenne pepper


!. Defrost the shrimp (follow the instructions on the package!)

2. Dice up all the veggies, cut the sausage into slices, and “rice” the cauliflower (I guess that was like 3 steps in one huh?…oh well!) To rice the cauliflower I took big chunks and threw them into a Ninja¬†blender and pulse until they reached a “rice” like texture.



3. Saute the garlic, onion, and bell pepper in the bottom of a large pot. Add the sausage and allow to cook for a few minutes. Toss in the cauliflower, broth and shrimp. Cover and let cook for like 5 minutes or so.

4. Add in the remaining ingredients, cover and allow to cook for another 10-15 minutes so that all the flavors combine.





I also happened to be craving some dessert…but dessert that I wouldn’t feel guilty about eating. So for that I turned to my handy, dandy Practical Paleo cookbook. I made a dairy free chocolate mousse, and you can see the ingredients here. Who knew avocados and chocolate could taste so amazing??!! Give it a try!
