Vegan Recipe: Jambalaya

Last Friday night I played a gig with Joel and Christo. One of the songs that we performed was Jambalaya. I was craving it ever since so I just had to make it.

I love this brand of meatless sausages. All the ones that I have tried are great and there is no soy in them....
only grains and vegetables.

Instructions

~ Chop the onions, garlic and jalapeños.
~ Sauté them with olive oil in a large pot for about 5 minutes or until they have begun to caramelize.
~ Add the crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, vegetable broth, worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, oregano, paprika, and liquid smoke. 
~ Cook until hot and bubbly.
~ Add the rice.
~ Cover and cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed (15 to 20 minutes).
~ Cut up the vegan sausages.
~ Drain and rinse beans.
~ Stir the sausages and beans into the rice mixture.
~ Continue to cook until peppers start to soften (about 5 minutes)
~ While the jambalaya is cooking sauté the jackfruit in some olive oil with the old bay seasoning. 
~ After the peppers have softened, stir in the parsley and turn off the heat. 
~ Serve the jambalaya topped with jackfruit, parsley, and some extra hot sauce.
