Whole30 Day 14 – Jambalaya Soup (Recipe)

I can’t believe 2 weeks have already gone by! I’ve lost 7 pounds so far and one jeans size! I’m super excited and plan to definitely continue on a strict paleo diet after the whole30 is over.

Since Jambalaya is one of my favorite things to make, I had to find a way to make it whole30 approved. I’ve tried it with cauliflower rice and it is just not that good. So I thought a soup is perfect! The recipe is similar to my original except I took out the rice and added kale and a little extra meat.


3 medium size chicken breasts

3 mild smoked andouille sausage links

A bunch of kale (I had a bag of torn up kale and just kept putting some in until it looked right, I added more than I thought was necessary because it will cook down a bit)

1 can diced tomatoes with juice (I got the one with no salt added)

4 cups low sodium organic chicken broth

1 onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

1-2 t Italian seasoning

1 t paprika

red pepper flakes (optional)

S&P to taste

Begin by cutting the chicken up into cubes and brown in olive oil

Slice the sausage anyway you like and add to the chicken

Add the chopped onion and garlic, the black pepper and spices (except salt) and cook everything together until aromatic

Add the can of diced tomatoes + juice

And stir to combine

Add the chicken broth and bring to a light boil

At this point you can taste the broth to see how much salt to add. I always add a little less than I think is necessary because the flavors of everything will become more intense as the soup simmers. Right before I serve it, I taste it again to see if it needs more.

Add the kale last and then let soup simmer for about an hour and then serve!

    I am sooo a fan of jambalaya! Anytime you put more than one animal in a dish ups the oodles of enjoyment for me 🙂 Glad to know it didn’t work out with the cauliflour rice, I was thinkin about giving that a try.

      I think I must have cooked the cauliflower rice wrong. It’s worth a try. I just always get disappointed when I try to substitute something for the real thing because really, nothing compares to the real thing haha!

    Where did you find sugar free Andouille? I’ve been wanting to make some southern dishes, but haven’t been able to find a sugar free one for when we are w30ing
