Vegan Jambalaya
From: Jennye

I can't take credit for this. It is from Jack Sprat's Restaurant in New Orleansand appeared in the Vegetarian Times October 1996 issue. It is yummy though!

(from Jack Sprat's Restaurant in New Orleans) Vegetarian Times October 1996

  • 1/2 stick margarine
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 1/2 green bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup mixed fresh seasonal vegetables, cut in chunks (I use frozen and it worked just fine)
  • 2 cups tempeh (they say tofu, tempeh or seitan but I liked the texture of tempeh)
  • 2 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbs. vegetarian "chicken" flavored powdered seasoning
  • 8 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
In medium pot over low heat, melt margarine.
Add stock, peppers, onion, tomato and mixed fresh seasonal vegetables.
Simmer, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
Add tempeh and seasonings; cook 5 more minutes.
Stir in rice and tomato paste; continue stirring until mixture is thoroughly blended.

Serve hot garnished with carrot and scallions and crusty french bread or even cornbread.
Makes 10 servings of about 1 1/2 cups each.

(Note:
The restaurant recommends a vegetable/soy products combination of 1 cup broccoli, 1 cup baked, marinaded tempeh and 1 cup reconstituted textured vegetable protein mock "chicken".
Another flavorful combination is 1 cup mushrooms, 1 cup baked, marinated tofu and 1 cup mock "sausage".)
