This Low-Carb Jambalaya is a delicious one-pan 30-minute main dish recipe that is gluten-free, dairy-free, and packed with flavor!



  • 2 tbsp cajun seasoning or use ingredients below for homemade (my preferred method)
  • 2 tbsp (30mL) avocado oil
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 medium-sized white onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 13.5 oz Andouille sausage, sliced into small pieces
  • 1 lb frozen shrimp, thawed
  • 1 bag (10.5 oz) steamable microwave cauliflower rice
  • 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp (30mL) chicken broth or vegetable broth

Homemade Cajun Seasoning:

Optional Garnish:

  • Finely chopped fresh parsley


  1. Cajun Seasoning: Use storebought cajun seasoning, or, to make your own, in a small mixing bowl, whisk together all spices to make cajun seasoning. Set aside.
  2. Cook Vegetables and Sausage: In a large pot over medium-high heat, heat avocado oil before adding bell peppers, onion, and celery and sauteeing until softened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in sliced sausage and cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add-In And Simmer Remaining Ingredients: Stir in frozen cauliflower rice, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and prepared cajun seasoning. Increase stovetop heat to medium-high, stir in shrimp and bring mixture to a simmer and cook until shrimp is pink and cooked throughout and liquid has slightly reduced, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Final Steps: Taste and add additional salt, pepper, and/or cayenne pepper, based on your taste preferences. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
