Red Bean Jambalaya … and a Book Giveaway

by Robin on January 11, 2010

in 1000 Vegan Recipes

Since the Tabasco sauce was still near the front of the refrigerator shelf from the New Year’s Hoppin’ John, it reminded me that I hadn’t made jambalaya in a long time. So before my sriracha sauce elbowed the Tabasco to the back of the fridge again, I thought I’d better make some. I decided on the Red Bean Jambalaya from 1,000 Vegan Recipes.

Beginning with the N’awlins “trinity” of onion, celery, and bell peppers, the spicy tomato-based sauce was simmering in minutes. The wonderful aroma wafted through the house and made me wonder why I waited so long to make it. In addition to the red beans, I added a few sliced vegan sausage links and, of course, the requisite Tabasco. Since I had some rice already cooked, I didn’t add any to the jambalaya, preferring instead to spoon the jambalaya over the rice. It really hit the spot in this cold weather.

Book Giveaway:

If you still haven’t snagged your copy of 1,000 Vegan Recipes, head on over to Vegan Appetite where Tami is giving away a copy of the book. Tami was a tester for 1,000 Vegan Recipes and shares her photos of some the dishes she made.

Robin, I just wanted to tell you that after having Vegan Planet on my bookshelf for five years, we are finally converting! I watched Food Inc the other day, and it pretty much sealed the deal. I have been thumbing through your book everyday, writing down lists to get on my next grocery trip! I'm very excited to try all the yummy recipes, and I am VERY happy to have stumbled across this blog! Thank you for all the wonderful ideas that make being a Vegan soo easy!
