Jumbalaya…The Healthy Way

12 Apr

For dinner I made my dad and I Jumbalaya! It was soooo delicious. Daddy loved it. Nice and healthy meal too. Well with a few slight changes from the regular. Here’s how to do it!

1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 zucchini, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 turkey Italian sausages
1/2 cup dry quinoa
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 can fire-roasted tomatoes
1/2 lb shrimp
1/2 pound chicken
Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onion, zucchini, bell pepper, garlic and sausage slices for 5 minutes.
Add the quinoa and toss to coat, about 2 minutes.
Add broth and tomatoes to skillet and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.
Add the shrimp and chicken and cover the pan. Cook an additional 5 to 10 minutes
Add salt and pepper to taste.
