Paleo Jambalaya

Aw yiss, it’s been months and months since I posted a recipe! I had a hankering for jambalaya tonight, which I don’t eat nearly enough of and have never tried making at home before.

If you’re like me, the word “casserole” makes you gag a little, and your standard casserole is *certainly* not paleo-friendly, but never fear. This casserole (which we shall call a “bake” from now on) is delicious and perfectly paleo. Continue reading
