Protein Substitutions
Chicken Tenderloin
Cut into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper. Sear quickly over medium-high heat in a little oil for about 30 second to 1 minute per side, or until almost done. Remove from pot and set aside. Cook veggies and continue recipe. Add chicken back to the pot when you add the cooked rice. This will finish cooking the chicken and allow the flavors to meld.

Turkey / Beyond Sausage
Cut three slits into the top of the sausage, cutting about halfway through the meat. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Cook sausage 3-4 minutes per side or until cooked through, and no longer pink. Slice into 1/4" slices and add to the Jambalaya along with the shrimp in the last step.

Vegan Shrimp
Follow instructions as for shrimp.

Tofu
Press until dry, cut into cubes season with salt and pepper. Add a small amount of oil to a non-stick skillet and heat over medium high heat. Add tofu to pan and brown on each side for about 1-2 minutes. Add to the Jambalaya along with the shrimp in the last step.
