First, in January, while attending the WordCamp Phoenix 2014 in Chandler, I trooped outside to the line of food trucks with other attendees. I walked past those doling out burgers, burritos, and barbecue sandwiches.

And I found a Cajun gem, Jamburritos Cajun Grille - Express. When I asked about gluten-free options, they quickly answered that they could make for me a vegetarian bowl. To my delight, the hush puppies were gluten-free, too.

The Veggie Jambalaya Bowl included Creole cabbage served over a bed of red beans and rice and topped with black bean salsa and shredded lettuce. It took me back to the French Quarter, with wonderful Louisiana spices and textures.

A big thank you to Jamburritos for understanding and offering an option for those of who can't eat flour tortillas.
