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.
