EASY ONE POT MARKET JAMBALAYA

Check it out! Illinois Stewardship Alliance has partnered with Copper Pot Cooking Studio to bring Farmers Market Meal Kits to the Old Capitol Farmers Market in downtown Springfield. The kits, in the style of Blue Apron, Sun Basket, and other popular meal kit delivery services, will feature perfectly-portioned, fresh, seasonal ingredients with a simple recipe; however, unlike the competition, all of the ingredients will be sourced locally from Central Illinois farmers.
This meal kit was offered August 26th, but with fall weather coming on, we think it's the perfect recipe to recreate at home! Stop by your nearest farmers market or local butcher shop this weekend to pick up the main ingredients.
In a Dutch oven, combine rice mix, water, tomatoes, tomato paste, sausage, pork, and chicken. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat and let simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until rice is tender and meat is cooked through.
