  • Please take note! When I entered this recipe, I messed something up in the calculations! It actually has 198 calories per 1 cup serving. It has been correctly re-entered as Grandma's Jambalaya. Very good and worth every calorie! - 8/11/08

  • Made it for my picky boyfriend, and parents last night. Cut the recipe in half, and found it was not enough for all of us (the men are big eaters!) Very delicious though, will add more of a variety of veggies next time as well. - 8/10/08

    Ok ladies and gentlemen, I measured this time. This recipe makes a full 12 cups. So, you can have a full cup for a serving. Have 2 if you're really hungry. You still won't blow your day and the protein content is unbelievable.

  • I have a question too: how does the brown rice cook thoroughly in just over 20 minutes? Normally brown rice takes around 40 mins. - 7/31/08

    I used quick cooking because I happened to have it on hand. But, when cooking, I would just cook "until done."

  • The first time I made it I did so with a mild flavor and added more spice to my own serving and loved it. However the kids wouldn't even touch it so I made it again over the weekend because they're off to camp, made it more spicey and invited a couple of adult friends over and it was a complete HIT! - 7/30/08

  • This was pretty tasty (with tomatos and peppers)...use Old Bay or Zatarain's seasoning to cook the shrimp and use the broth for the Jambalaya for even more authentic flavor. - 7/29/08

    That's a great idea. I have some Old Bay I think.

  • I am going to make this. Jambalaya is one of my families favorite meals and since I have all boys (2 teens still home) they could even have 2 or 3 servings, the calories are so low! - 7/29/08
