First, let me just say that this recipe is DELICIOUS. I don’t know how it came together so perfectly, but it is really really really good. My superawesome friend used to live in New Orleans and she once made some really amazing Jambalaya and I remember thinking: I could never make this. It was full of smoky New Orleans flavors and it was realllllllly delicious. I didn’t try to recreate that authentic recipe, but I went with a lighter, less traditional approach. The resulting Brown Rice Jambalaya is SO SO GOOD.
Just in time to move to a country that doesn’t eat sausage, I started liking sausage. Sometime around last year it became less disgusting and more delicious. I blame a combination of Nom Nom Paleo’s sausage recipe and Get Fresh meals. So now I like sausage flavors, but I’m pretty sure I haven’t eaten sausage since May 2014 when I made the super delicious Paleo Sausage-Pepper Egg Bake. Apparently, sausage as we know it isn’t really a thing here. Instead they’ve got these flavored hotdogs that are really weird (Japanese people seem to LOVE hotdogs – what is that about?), and the foreign market has some brand of American sausage that I would never buy.
Lucky for me, improvisation is usually my friend in the kitchen, and sausage is no exception.
