Recipe: Jambalaya

I told you I would post this recipe eventually. I made it again tonight and I made some tweaks which I believe made it much better! Even DH said, "This has a lot of flavor. It's good." One day I will record him saying this so that people will believe me when I say vegan food can be yummy! Now, of course, you don't have to make this can substitute the real thing for the 'sausage.' But, I really encourage you to try something new and 'animal-friendly!'

(adapted from Peas and Thank You.)

-Tofurky Italian 'Sausages'
-1 Small Onion
-1 Bell Pepper (Any color)
-1 can Diced Tomatoes

-~1/3 cup Sun Dried Tomatoes
-1 tsp Garlic, Minced
-1 tsp Oregano, Dried
-1 tsp Parsley, Dried
-1 tsp Basil, Dried
-1 tsp Onions, Minced

-Slice the Tofurky sausage into coin shaped pieces (about 1/4-1/3 inch or so)
-Brown in a skillet sprayed with Pam for about 5 minutes

-Add the Onions, Bell Pepper and Sun-Dried Tomatoes and cook for another 3-5 minutes, until vegetables are a bit more tender
-Add Basil, Oregano, Parsely, Garlic and Broth, cook for a few more minutes

-Serve and Devour!



  1. This jambalaya looks delicious! And the vegan sausage isn't that bad - so I'm willing to give it a go this way =)

  2. Hi Peggy! Yes, I don't mind the Vegan sausage at all! But, I've never been a pork eater really. It never hurts to try something new! I hope you like it! Let me know how it turns out!
