Easy Jambalaya - With sausage, shrimp, veggies, rice + all the best signature flavors, all made in ONE POT! So good with the easiest clean up!

Say hello to another speedy weeknight favorite here, with maximum flavor and just one pot to clean.

Packed with shrimp, andouille sausage, peppers, basmati rice (or any other long grain rice), and a handful of oh-so-lovely pantry spices for that bold flavor, this comes together very fast. And the leftovers taste even better the next day, not that there will be much left on the dinner table in my opinion.

And this recipe can easily be made your own – no shrimp, add chicken, less sausage, more veggies – you can do all of the things.

Serve with a light salad and crusty bread for a full, rounded out meal.

TOOLS FOR THIS RECIPE

CAN I USE DRY HERBS INSTEAD?

Absolutely! But because dried herbs are often more potent/concentrated than fresh herbs, you need less when using dry. The correct ratio is 1 tablespoon fresh herbs to 1 teaspoon dried herbs.

CAN I SUB OUT THE SHRIMP?

Absolutely. This recipe is incredibly versatile, and you can use any kind of protein to your liking such as boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or thighs), or even leftover shredded rotisserie chicken.

  • 1 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 (12.8-ounce) package smoked andouille sausage, thinly sliced
