Hearty Gluten-Free Turkey Jambalaya

My family loves a spicy dinner and I love a meal that is naturally gluten-free and easy to convert to vegetarian. I found this hearty turkey jambalaya recipe a few years ago and it is on permanent rotation for us. It’s a quick and easy option for busy school nights. If you like heat, you might need to add a bit more red pepper but this version is perfect for the kids. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup rice
  • 2 cups fat-free chicken broth or vegetable broth for vegetarian option
  • 1 can diced tomatoes — (14.5-ounce) undrained
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions
  • Optional — 6 ounces Jennie-O Lean Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage — chopped

PREPARATION

1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and garlic; sauté 6 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in bell peppers and next 5 ingredients; sauté 1 minute. Add rice; sauté 1 minute. Stir in broth and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Cover, and reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. If using turkey sausage, add it now, cover and cook 5 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions. Makes about 8 cups.
