Food, Fun and Face!

Welcome to my blog! I'm starting this blog to add some spice to some of your kitchens! I follow a primal lifestyle which basically means I eat a whole bunch of vegetables, good meats, some fruit, nuts and seeds and a little dairy. I avoid eating all grains and try not to eat processed food and limit the amount of sugar I throw down my throat. Basically the name of the game is to eat REAL FOOD. Sounds simple right? But sometimes people find it hard to start to eat this way. So this blog is here to help you (and me) throw together some awesome tasty food . So please stay a while and get your creative kitchen juices flowing again!!

Jambalaya!

This one is another one pot wonder. Really easy to prepare and quick to make.

It's straight out of Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint cookbook but with my own twists on it.

The sausage that I used this particular time were Malaysian satay gluten free numbers from The Pork Mart in greenlane. They are next to the car wash place by the round-a-bout. They have some awesome good quality meat in there and are not too expensive.

If you want to make this one really spicy then add some fresh chili at the beginning of the cooking process!

Ingredients:

3-4 Gluten Free Sausages (any kind)
2 Big Handfuls of Prawns
1 Onion
2 Sweet Peppers
2 Garlic Cloves
1tsp Paprika
1tsp Oregano
1tsp Thyme
1tsp Salt
1/8tsp Cayenne pepper
2 Cans Crushed Tomatoes
2 Cups Chicken Stock
1/2 Head Cauliflower
Chopped Spring Onion for garnish (optional)


Get a big stockpot and put on a high heat.

Slice up the sausage into pieces and add to the pot. While that's frying off chop up your onion, garlic and peppers.

You can add a little olive oil to the pot if you feel it needs it.

Throw in the onion, pepper and garlic and give it a good stir.



When you can start to smell the onion cooking add the paprika, oregano, thyme and salt.

Then add the 2 cans of tomatoes and 2 cups of chicken stock and bring to the boil.

Turn the heat down and with a lid on let it simmer for 10 mins.



While that simmers away cut up your cauliflower and then blitz it in a food processor until it comes out in the consistency of rice.


After the 10 mins of simmering is up add the whizzed up cauliflower to the pot and simmer for a further 10 mins. Then add the prawns and cook until they are pink. Only takes a few minutes more.

Then it's done!


Garnish with some chopped up spring onion if you so desire! Too easy.
