New Orleans Creole Style Vegetarian Jambalaya with Pineapple Saladby Cook Gourmet

Rs. 498 Serves 2

This dish was born late one night when a traveler arrived at a New Orleans Inn long after dinner had been served. According to story, the Inn's cook, a man named Jean, was told to "balayez" or "throw something" together to feed the man. The results were delicious and the name evolved to Jambalaya.
