Did anyone else grow up eating those boxed jambalaya mixes? The box mixes and smoked sausage have always been fairly affordable, so we ate it pretty often in my family growing up. Luckily, with this low carb turkey sausage jambalaya, I can enjoy a dish from my childhood without having so much carbohydrate and fat from the original stuff.
Another great thing about this dish is that it’s just as easy (actually, easier) than the box mix. It definitely took less time to put this together and the ingredients were fresher tasting. And for those of you cooking for family that doesn’t follow the low carb life, it’s easy to use the frozen cauliflower rice to make this low carb portion for yourself without having to feel like it’s a completely different meal.
A little note on the creole/cajun seasoning… it’s pretty spicy! Scale the seasoning back to a 1/2 tablespoon or less if you don’t like your food very spicy.
All in all, this is a great, quick meal for a night that you don’t want to spend more than 20 minutes in the kitchen. You can use peppers or onions like I did, or use different vegetables of your choice. You can also use chicken or ground beef instead of smoked turkey sausage. Feel free to make this your own!
