Method

  1. Tip the tomatoes into a large microwavable bowl. Fill the empty can with rice and tip it into the bowl, then fill the can with water and pour it in. Stir in the pepper, chorizo, sweetcorn, Cajun seasoning and some salt and pepper to season.
  2. Cover the bowl with cling film and pierce a couple of holes in it with a knife. Microwave the rice for 10 minutes at 750W. Tear off the cling film and give everything a really good stir, then return the uncovered bowl to the microwave for another 12-15 minutes until the rice is done.
  3. Take the bowl out of the microwave, cover it with a plate and leave to stand for 5 minutes before stirring in the parsley, if you are using it. Serve the jambalaya straight from the bowl, with the soured cream to spoon over it.

So easy. A firm favourite among the males in the family who are very fussy.

Quick, easy, tasty and all the family love it. I am normally very wary of microwave recipes.
