Healthy Shrimp Jambalaya

Ingredients
•1 tablespoon olive oil, plus 2 tablespoons
•1 small onion, chopped
•5 stalks celery, chopped
•1 cup chopped green bell pepper
•1 cup uncooked farro
•2 bay leaves
•1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
•1 tablespoon smoked paprika
•2 teaspoons chili powder
•13 ounces strained tomatoes, or tomato puree
•3 cups low sodium vegetable broth
•1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans, thoroughly drained and rinsed
•30 uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined

Directions

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large, deep sautι pan over medium heat.

Add the onion and cook until softened, about 2 minutes.

Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, celery, bell pepper, farro, bay leaves, garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, and strained tomatoes. Stir until well combined, and season with salt and pepper.

Add the vegetable broth, stir until combined, and bring to a boil.

When broth begins to boil, reduce to a light simmer, cover, and cook, stirring frequently.

Wolf-e,


Welcome!


My suggestion is to leave out the farro and reduce your liquid to reflect this.  I would mash the beans and place the jumbalaya on top.  Farro, while an ancient wheat, is still wheat and should be avoided.  Or, since jumbalaya is traditionally served over rice, I would use a small amount of rice since (maybe 1/2 cup for the entire dish.  You can used riced, steamed cauliflower instead of the rice base, those konjac noodles (Miracle Noodles) or even some lentils.  Remember, the recipe is a "jumble" so any substitutions are good.
