    Jambalaya is a great one-dish meal as it is a rice dish that has many vegetables and meats/seafood in it. That said, you might want to make a side pot of Gumo Z'Herbes (vegetarian gumbo) to serve as a soup/starter course or a pot of collard greens. Mirliton (also known as chayote) is also a typical Cajun vegetable. A nice salad would probably be plenty though with a loaf of bread.

    For dessert you cannot go wrong with pralines or beignets. While beignets are more typically served as a breakfast food they'd make a fine dessert and would keep with your cajun/New Orleans theme. Sadly, my homemade recipe did not come out as good as the mix that I bought from Cafe du Monde - lol.

    Enjoy your get together and Laissez les bon temps rouler!

    My husband(a born & bread cajun), serves it with plain rice and a loaf of french bread. Right now is Mardi Gras season, so King's cake is a great dessert, but can take time.
