Jambalaya Stew: Hidden vitamins in every bite

This delicious 16 bean  jambalaya stew, is not only delicious but it is full of hidden vitamins. Don’t worry, it doesn’t taste healthy at all. In fact, even your pickiest of unhealthy eaters will think this is nothing but bad. 😉

Don’t tell, but…

The beans are rich in energy-giving carbohydrates, with a low glycemic index rating for blood glucose control. A good source of B-group vitamins (especially folate), iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium.

The bell peppers  are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), vitamin C and vitamin B6. They are a very good source of folate, molybdenum, vitamin E, dietary fiber, vitamin B2, pantothenic acid, niacin and potassium

The kale is a good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese. While spinach is a richer source of folate and an equally good source of iron and fibre.

This is a great stew for kicking up the immune system during the fall back to school germ festival and during the winter flu season.

Make it your own…

This jambalaya stew is so easy to mix it up, change the flavors and add your own touch.  We love to serve it with some fried cornbread and cooked greens.

This is an amazingly flavorful stew, with a Cajun kick. We love serving this at football games and for any cool weather gathering. (Makes a great New Year's Day dish also). You can make it as spicy or mild as your heart desires. Kick it up with some added shrimp or crab meat.
