When paella meets risotto you get a yummy combination called jambalaya. You can never have too many one-pot meals in your arsenal, right? One-pan recipes like this are a real timesaver. Perfect weeknight dinner.

As one of the most beloved dishes across Louisiana, jambalaya is usually made with chicken, sausage, and seafood. Nonetheless, this dish tastes absolutely fine without.

It is surprisingly easy to make and fast to make, customizable with your favorite flavors and protein sources. I used chickpeas instead of meat and seafood as my protein source.
