Vegan Jambalaya

What you need: 

2 14oz packages vegan sausage (I use Gimme Lean Sausage)
1 12oz bag frozen onions
4 cups bell pepper (assorted red, green, yellow), chopped
2 cups celery, chopped
1 1/2 cup chopped parsley
2 bunches green onions, chopped
3 tablespoons cornstarch mixed in 1/2 cup cold water
15 bay leaves
2 tablespoons black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
4 tablespoons creole seasoning (I use Tony Chachere Creole Seasoning)
1 30 oz can crushed tomatoes in puree
1 30 oz can tomato sauce
3 tablespoons hot sauce (I use Louisiana Hot Sauce (not habereno))

What you do: 

In a deep skillet/pan brown vegan sausage in 1/2 cup oil.
In huge pot add 1/2 cup (or more as needed) oil. Sautee all the vegetable till soft including bay leaves.
Add all the tomatoes sauces and seasoning.
Add veg broth & the cornstarch.
Then add browned sausage and let cook on low bubble stirring often or it'll stick and burn to the bottom of the pot) for a least 1 hour. 2 hours preferred. If it thickens too much add more veg broth or water.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I never have made or tasted Jambalaya before so I'm not sure what to compare to, but I thought this recipe turned out delicious. It was super easy to make, the only adjustments I made was using beer instead of veg stock as suggested, and adding oregano, 2 tbsp vegan worcestshire, and garlic. My only complaint was that mine turned out a little oily, next time I am going to steam the vegetables, I don't think it will make much of a difference since it's already so flavorful.

I made this but I added tempeh and used a bottle of beer instead of broth/water. I just measured by eye and it seemed to work fine.

This recipe says to add veg broth but it is not listed in the ingredients - how much???

30 ounces. That's two 15 ounce cans of broth. Or use the soy-milk like cartons of broth, which are are 32 ounces, which would be fine also.

Thanks for catching it.
