Jambalaya | Gluten Free & StoveTop |

9:53 AM

It's been a hot minute friends! Hurricanes will set your life back like that. 
I've been dying to get back into normal cooking and recipe sharing with y'all! Cooking in the evening is my happy place, it's the time to decompress from work and whip up something yummy and filling to sit on the couch and eat with the hubs.

Fall is here! 

And I don't know about you but I am beyond excited for fall. Granted Florida doesn't get the memos on fall weather and how it's supposed to work, but we make the best of it. The weather does seem to slowly cool down which means oven meals are back, crock pot meals are more plentiful, and hearty dinners and treats are abounding. 

Did someone say Jambalaya? 

Yup! And a jambalaya that can be made vegan! However, I'll admit I didn't make mine vegan. Finding a vegan sausage that was also Gluten Free was VERY hard in my area. I was pretty disappointed but I don't mind buying poultry products if I know the animals were taken care of and not filled with junk. Hence, why I love Applegate as a company. They make sure the animals are treated well and socialized (which is something I'm passionate about) So I grabbed some of their pepper turkey breakfast patties and added them to the Jambalaya. They worked PERFECTLY with this recipe!
Just tweak the sausage to your dietary preference!
