Today I welcome Maria from Ten at the Table to the blog! Maria is going to share a delicious and Paleo-friendly recipe for Paleo Jambalaya Soup! This is one of those recipes you can throw in the crockpot and go! I know you will love it!
Spring is in the air but the weather has no idea if it is winter or summer around here. One day it is in the forties and the next in the eighties. I just start thinking about putting away all the winter clothes and then a cold wet snap of weather comes right on through. And the next day the kids are asking about bringing out the pool. This Paleo Jambalaya Soup is a great meal to have on both days. The crock pot won’t heat up the house but provides a nice warm meal on the cool ones. And this Paleo twist on a Louisiana classic can clear the sinuses better than any allergy pill I’ve tried!
Warning: This soup is not for those sensitive to spicy things!
Paleo Crockpot Jambalaya Soup
- 5 cups chicken stock (make your own like this)
- 4 bell peppers (one of each color), chopped
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 large can of organic diced tomatoes (with the juice)
- 2 cloves garlic, diced
- 2 bay leafs
- 1 lb large shrimp, raw and de-veined
- 4 oz. chicken, diced
- 1 package spicy Andouille sausage
- 1/2-1 head of cauliflower, riced
- 2 cups okra (optional)
- 3 tbsp Cajun Seasoning
- 1/4 cup hot sauce
- Put the chopped peppers, onions, garlic, chicken, cajun seasoning, hot sauce, and bay leafs in the crockpot with the chicken stock. Set on low for 6 hours.
- About 30 minutes before it’s finished, toss in the cut up sausages.
- While this is cooking quickly make cauliflower rice by pulsing raw cauliflower in the food processor until it resembles rice.
- For the last 20 minutes, add in the cauliflower rice and the raw shrimp. Note: You can choose to quickly steam the cauliflower rice in the microwave and serve the jambalaya OVER it as well.
