Can I Make Traditional Jambalaya Using ONLY Substitute Ingredients? | Mom Vs | MyRecipes ─ MyRecipes

What if you want to make a recipe, but don't have all the ingredients? You substitute! Nicole is challenged by Food Stylist Rishon to recreate a traditional jambalaya recipe by using only substitute ingredients. No shrimp? Try tilapia! No rice? Try couscous. Lots of great ideas, but will this recipe actually work out? Check it out!

Here's the original jambalaya recipe that Nicole references (before the substitutions)

1 pound andouille sausage, sliced
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 cups diced sweet onion
1 cup diced celery
1 large red bell pepper, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 bay leaf
2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 (10-oz.) cans diced tomatoes and green chiles, drained
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups uncooked long-grain rice
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 pound peeled, medium-size raw shrimp, deveined
1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Garnish: chopped green onions

How to Make It

Step 1
Cook sausage in hot oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until browned. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon.

Step 2
Add diced onion and next 7 ingredients to hot drippings; sauté 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in tomatoes, next 3 ingredients, and sausage. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes or until rice is tender.

Step 3
Stir in shrimp; cover and cook 5 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink. Stir in parsley. Serve immediately.

Step 4
To Freeze: Prepare recipe as directed. Line bottom and sides of a 13- x 9-inch baking dish with heavy-duty aluminum foil, allowing 2 to 3 inches to extend over sides; fill with jambalaya. Cover and freeze. To serve, remove foil, return casserole to original baking dish; cover and thaw in refrigerator 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Bake at 350° until thoroughly heated.
