My recipe for jambalaya has a couple of peculiarities. For one, it tells you to use a third of the 3 cloves garlic, chopped, half the onions, and half the celery in step one. Nowhere else does it say when to use the rest of the onions/garlic/celery. It also calls for one large bell pepper and four shallots. It doesn't give any sort of context for them, though. Just the idea of them should be involved. You should buy them to support the bell pepper and chive market.
I dunno. Got everything out of order, ended up boiling the onions and celery instead of frying them, so they had no texture to speak of. The flavor was there, but everything was a wee bit gummy.
flippantmoniker brought some good beans with mushrooms. Mmm. Flavor. A wonderful night for rich food and propaganda. Thanks for hosting, Whines :)
