I’ve been craving some good Jambalaya lately, but couldn’t find a recipe from an SCD legal source.  So, I just made one up!  I substituted red kidney beans for the rice (can’t have rice), and it really turned out quite nummy.  This is a good basic recipe, I think, that you could go and add or subtract to make it your own.  I add a few dolops of homemade dripped yogurt on top, and it’s wonderful!  I make mine spicy, but you can just tame the spicy ingredients down if you don’t want your sinuses cleared out that much.  🙂


  • 1 medium white or yellow onion
  • 3 large cloves of garlic
  • 4 stalks of celery
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1-2 medium hot peppers, diced fine
  • 2 cups soaked red kidney beans (they will finish cooking in the pot)
  • 2 cups homemade chicken stock
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • dash of dried oregano (optional)
  • dash of dried thyme (optional)


Dice the onion and garlic semi-fine and put in a large pot with some olive oil over medium heat while you cut everything else up.  Dice chunky the celery and peppers, and add them to the pot.  Finely dice the hot peppers and add them to the pot.  Add all other ingredients, and bring everything up to a simmer.  Simmer most of an hour, or until the majority of the liquid has been absorbed AND the beans are done.  You can add hamburger or chicken to this.  For non SCDers you could add a good sausage to this and/or serve it with rice.  Voila!
