I’m sat eating this as I type this and believe me… It tastes bloody amazing! This Cajun-inspired jambalaya contains plenty of carbs, protein and veg and is a PERFECT post workout meal. This was actually the first time I cooked this – and it turned out so well that I just had to write it up for you!
This should take you about 45 minutes to prepare start to finish (if you know your way around a kitchen and don’t have fists made of ham). You’ll only need one pan too so there’s hardly any washing up. I actually made four servings for myself (greedy bastard) and I’m eating one right now – the other three are going in the fridge as this recipe is perfect as a meal prep.
