This easy Vegan Jambalaya with Red Kidney Beans and Fresh Okra is pleasantly smokey, and can be made mild or spicy!
Vegan Jambalaya - Smokey Creole Style
Saute onions, garlic, red pepper, and okra. Okra will be a bit slimy which is normal. Saute with a splash of water.
Saute until onions begin to get translucent.
Add dices tomatoes, kidney beans, celery and tomato paste and stir.
Stir in all spices. Simmer 15 minutes.
Add Rice. Brown Rice takes at least 40 minutes to cook. Alternatively, white rice works and will only take about 20 minutes. Cook until rice is tender and most liquids are absorbed.
Serve! Store rest for later!
This recipe is made with no added salt or oil. You may salt it to taste. Using soy sauce instead of Tamari will make this a saltier dish. There is some salt in canned beans and tomatoes, so exercise caution when adding salt. You may use cooked beans and fresh tomato if you prefer.
