Not only does ‘Jambalaya’ have a really cool name, but it also has a fascinating history!
Originating from Louisiana, the dish included whatever locals could get their hands on, as well as lots of lovely spices from the Caribbean.
We just love the idea of throwing lots of delicious ingredients into one pot and experimenting with different seasoning and flavours.
Our seasonal vegan version includes some of our favourite winter vegetables. It’s perfect for cold nights and the best thing is you can make the entire thing in one pot!
The cajun seasoning gives the dish a lovely kick and a smokey aroma. Be careful because some cajun mixes can be very spicy, so you might want to try adding one tbsp, then testing the recipe.
Okra is a seriously underrated vegetable. We’ve found the trick is not to overcook it, otherwise it can turn into a slimy mess!
