Prawn Jambalaya

This is the same recipe as Jill's Chicken Jambalya but with king prawns added instead of chicken! It works very well with prawn but I mush prefer the chicken version for a nice big comforting bowl!

I tend to use frozen king prawns so defrost these in some cold water while I wait for everything to cook, if you buy fresh cook them while the rice is cooking then set aside.

Chop some onion, garlic and peppers and fry in a little fat of your choice, I like to use coconut oil but other oils are fine.


Add 1 tsp each thyme and oregano and as much cayenne pepper as you like depending on how spicy you want it.

Add 1 tin of chopped tomatoes (or fresh is even better, especially with the prawns), add about 1 tbsp tomato purée, 1 veggie stock cube (or proper stock if you have it!) and about 150g basmati rice for 2 people and pour in enough boiling water to cover the rice - be careful not to use too little water or the rice can take ages to cook.


Once the rice is done add in prawns to heat through


And serve!


I like to make an extra portion and re-heat it for lunch the next day.
