The friendliest kitchen in all the land!
Hi folks! Welcome back and it’s great to have you here! I hope you enjoyed the previous recipe.
Today I have another awesome treat for you. So soon after the holidays you must have a lot of leftover turkey. It would be a shame for that to go to waste, so this recipe comes from my good friends at British Turkey! They’re an amazing bunch and they love turkey more than anyone. Have a look at all these amazing turkey recipes!
Let’s make a turkey jambalaya!
What you need:
4 tsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 red and 1 green pepper, de-seeded and chopped
4 sticks celery, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, crushed
4 spicy sausages or chorizo, sliced into chunks
400g leftover British turkey breast, cut into cubes
2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
500g long-grain rice
2 tbsp turmeric
2 tbsp Cajun spices
1 tsp Tabasco
2 pints chicken stock
3 tomatoes, chopped
4 tbsp frozen peas
Salt and black pepper
Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the onion, peppers, celery, garlic and sausage for about ten minutes.
Add the cooked turkey, chillies, rice, spices and Tabasco, stirring well so the rice is well mixed in. In case you cannot find Cajun spices at your store, you can try to make your own and this is what you need:
Pour in the stock and bring to the boil. Then add the tomatoes, peas and prawns and reduce heat to simmer for about 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste for seasoning, adding salt, pepper and more spices if required and voilà dinner is ready!
I made this for my friends during our NFL Wild Card round and we were blown away how good it was. It had a gentle kick from all the spices and all the flavors came together so beautifully. It was a great culinary experience. I thoroughly recommend it!
