So I kind of had an idea about a link up party. It was inspired by Julie over at Joy's Hope. I'm new to this whole technologically savvy stuff, so I'm not quite sure how it will all work out, but let's give it a try.
I love food. Good food. However, I have found that since I am trying to eat healthy, a lot of recipes are hit or miss in the yum department. Here's where you come in. Let's share our yummy healthy recipes. If the response is good, maybe I'll make it a weekly thing and we can have a ton of variety. Sound good?
Just link up below with a delicious recipe to share. Then hop around and enjoy!!
Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 bell peppers, any color, diced
2 onions, diced
1 pound reduced-fat turkey kielbasa, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne, or more to taste
5 cups water
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 cups long grain white rice
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add the peppers, onions and kielbasa and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables soften, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic, paprika, oregano, salt, and cayenne and cook, stirring, 1 minute.
2. Stir in the water, tomatoes, rice, and tomato paste and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and cook, covered, until the rice is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.
3. Add the shrimp and cook, covered, until cooked through, about 5 minutes.

And I live in Southern California, not the South, so I'm not quite sure about authentic, but it sure did taste good.
