On a spur of the moment decision to make jambalaya, I noted to my dismay that I was missing the trinity necessary to make it work, and having those with seafood and bell pepper sensitivities made it more difficult. As Teddy Roosevelt said, "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." This is the result, and it was a success!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place a dry wok on high heat. After 60 seconds, add the oil; 15 seconds later, add the rice and spices.
  2. Stir fry the rice until it becomes more opaque and browns slightly -- about 3 minutes.
  3. Lift off the heat, add the soy chorizo and white wine. Stir to combine and set back onto the heat for 90 seconds, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add in the kielbasa; this, like the soy chorizo, is a heat and eat product, so it does not require any serious cooking/browning time. Toss for another 90 seconds.
  5. Add the tomato sauce, broth, and zucchini. Stir to combine and bring to a low boil, 5-7 minutes.
  6. Add the chicken breast and salt, to taste. Stir, cover, and simmer on low for 45 minutes.
