Jambalaya Recipe & Menu Plan Monday {Gluten Free} 8.6.12

I'm back again!  The past week has been a whirlwind of tears and lots of work.  I flew back to Kansas over a week ago for my grandpa's funeral.  I'll chat more about that in the next few days so lets get on to the Jambalaya recipe & menu this week.  I'm here for another week so I'm cooking for my parents and planned some of my "comfort" foods with not much gluten that I love!

This is my mom's Jambalaya recipe that she created from several recipes.  It is super yummy and it is a great recipe to double so you have leftovers. The recipe includes iPhone pics because I hate lugging my nice camera when I fly.  

Olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
Kielbasa Sausage (or whatever sausages you like), sliced in bite sized pieces
2 Garlic cloves
1 1/2 cups brown rice
Chicken Stock (use the amount of liquid needed per the rice package)
2 tsp Cajun seasoning

Add olive oil and onions to stock pot.  Saute for 2 minutes.  

Add green pepper, celery, and garlic.  Saute for 1 minute.  

Add seasoning.  If can also use Creole seasoning for this recipe.  

Add sausage and cook for 3-4 minutes until sausage is slightly browned.  

Add rice and chicken stock.  Bring to boil, cover and simmer for time indicated on rice package or until rice is tender.

Unfortunately I forgot to snap a picture of the finished product.   Just trust me, it looks & tastes delicious!

Here is the menu for the week.  

Monday: Jambalaya & Assorted Fruit

Tuesday: Meatloaf, Mashed Cauliflower, Green Beans

Wednesday:  Black Bean Dip, Hummus with veggies.  I know this is an odd dinner, but my parents have Bible Study at their house, so they always have snack food for everyone.  

Thursday:  Out to eat with friends

Friday: Beef Stroganoff.  

I will post recipes for meatloaf, black bean dip, hummus, and Stroganoff later this week & next week.
