Paleo Crockpot Jambalaya Soup

Feb 17, 2012 by

This recipe was my guest post over at Food Renegade last year but I figured I’d re-post it here at the tailend of this winter and right before Mardis Gras!

It was originally inspired by my husband’s cold. Nothing clears the sinuses quite like a spicy jambalaya. This version is quite spicy but can be altered to your tastes by lowering the amount of hot sauce or using a less spicy sausage. I used this beautiful organic nitrate/hormone-free spicy Andouille I got from my local supermarket.

I also used four peppers – green, red, orange and yellow and cut them coarsely. They look so pretty and fresh!

  1. This really does sound absolutely delicious. Love the idea of cauliflower rice in a jambalaya. And I must locate that sausage. I adore andouille and it’s hard to find, much less organic.

  2. That soup looks incredible, AndreAnna! A very flavorful dose of sinus cleaning for sure. ;-) I like the addition of cauliflower rice, too. :-)

    Looks great…when do you add the okra? I’ve cooked dishes with it before and I know if it’s cooked too long it falls apart. Probably when you add in the sausage 30 mins before? Thanks!!

      Yup, 30 mins would be perfect!

        Hi there – making this now and just read about the Okra – darn! Oh well – it’s in there now but let’s just see how it turns out….also how about the tomatoes? I put them in already so ??

        Thanks, having company for dinner so we shall see! Excited!

    If we sub the shrimp for scallop would it make a huge difference or is there something else I could use…. my husband is allergic to shrimp :/

    How many ounces is a large can of tomatoes?

  6. Hiz

    When do you add the tomatoes?

    Hi, I’m wanting to make this for my husband’s birthday party this weekend. I’ve looked, but I can’t see where it says how many servings for this recipe?

    Do I cook the sausages before adding them to the crockpot or do I add raw cut up sausage? Thanks!

    I roasted a chicken in the crock the night before, and then made this without the shrimp or sausage because my wife won’t it those. Amazingly without the shrimp or the sausage or the okra this was amazing. I even cut out 1 cup of the broth in exchange fore water.

    Note: I made the homemade chili pepper and I recommend you do the same. Also, I left out the cauliflower rice and did it on the side, so some people in my family could choose regular rice and I could eat paleo. I would do the same. Cook the cauliflower on the stove and add it later or your jambalaya could end up tasting like cabbage.

    when do you add the tomatoes???

    Mine is very runny :(. I wonder what went wrong?

  12. I made this a few months ago and absolutely adored it. I froze it in large muffin cups, so I can heat it up one bowl at a time. Amazing. Thanks for sharing!

    This was awesome. My non-paleo friends and my family all loved it. I addedseveral tbsp. of extra-hot sauce to get a kick. I also didn’t have enough okra so i subbed celery ofr about 1/2 cup of that, which made it better. Didn’t add plain chicken in atthe beginning, turned out fine (seriously though, 4 oz. chicken? That won’t make a difference, why bother?). Everyone thought it actually contained rice, even my taste buds. Anyone reading this, you have to add the cauliflower rice in, it makes it significantly better, like the real thing. I think this was the first food i’ve eaten for at least a week without adding seasonings and spice to it at hte table, it’s just that good. Only proglem is it’s a watery soup, so you just got to eat a bit more to feel satisfied and get enough protein.
