It’s my little take on Jambalaya but with a milder, savory flavor and stick to your bones goodness that even the pickiest of eaters will love.It’s been a few years, but I’m finally beginning to get my son to eat rice again. I mean this kid was so disgusted with rice at one point that I actually thought something was wrong with him. But I soon realized it was no different from his disdain for mac & cheese, eggs, tomatoes, salad, orange juice or any other stuff that made me question whether my son was actually mine.So I came up with Mamalaya and it’s a hit! I mean plates are being wiped clean! I believe the key to getting my baby to like this is the fact that I use Yellow Rice as the main ingredient, instead of “boring” white rice.Remember, you can substitute or add whatever you like to this, but if you want to taste the full goodness, the tasty glory of this dish, then please don’t change a thing…just go with it. You’ll thank me later. What You’ll Need1 10 oz. Package Vigo Saffron Yellow Rice1 Pack Johnsonville Sweet Sausage Sliced (or Remove Casing & Create Large Chunks)2 Cups Swanson Chicken Stock (not Broth)1 Cup Water1/2 Large Sweet Onion Diced4 Scallions Chopped7-9 Grape Tomatoes SlicedToolsFrying PanLarge Pot with Lid (hopefully a tight-fitting lid)5 Mins PrepCook Time: 25-30 Mins CHECK THIS OUT ✴ Stellar's Banana Protein Deep Conditioner RecipeBegin cooking your sausage over med/high heat. Stir often. When sausage is just about done, add your onions & scallions to the pan. When the onions begin to turn clear & your sausage is fully cooked, remove the pan from the heat & set aside.Place large pot over med/high heat & pour contents of frying pan into the large pot. Immediately add your tomatoes and stir.Now pour in your Rice and 2 cups of Chicken Stock, stir. Add 1 cup of water, stir again and allow everything to come to a rolling boil.When pot has reached boiling point and everything is all bubbly and smelling heavenly, cover tightly & reduce heat to a low simmer. Let rice cook for about 25 minutes or until it reaches your desired tenderness. *Tip – if after 25 mins your rice isn’t tender enough for you, just add a tablespoon or 2 of water, cover tightly and let cook for an additional 5 mins over low/med heat. Don’t open the lid, Leave the lid on tight until dinner is ready. Now you can eat this as a 1 Dish Meal or pair it with a Veggie. It doesn’t require any extra seasoning because the flavor is already awesome. My favorite pairing is with ChiChi’s Sweet Corn Spoon Bread & some Garlic Butter Broccoli. Nom Nom…Enjoy!

June 3, 2014 LOL. I know what you mean. Reply Cherese Agee March 13, 2014 This looks delicious. I’m going to make this for my husband… should give me a couple days free from cooking dinner lol. Reply Candice S. March 13, 2014 It’s definitely a timesaver. I make it and toss it in a big tupperware dish and let them have at it for the next few days. It normally lasts us about 3 days for our family of 3, if we eat it as a side. Reply Antionette Blake March 6, 2014 This looks fantastic – a definite must try recipe! Reply Candice S.
