Here in Ithaca, winter is upon us in full force. And nothing warms up the chilly days like a bowl of Jambalaya, a favorite meal of Grainful's President, Jan Pajerski. Hearty, spicy and soulful, this traditional Creole dish hails from the warmer climes of Louisiana, with both French and Spanish roots. Considered by some to be the cousin of paella, Jambalaya typically consists of 3 main parts: meat + veggies + rice (not to mention a medley of herbs & spices and a whole lotta love). For our own Grainful riff on this dish, we toss out the rice and substitute – you got it – OATS!
