Veggie Cajun

I got this off the internet at this site

Really good-even the meat eaters loved it.  The "Gimme Lean" menioned is great.  I find it at Whole Foods here, Publix in FL had it also.


Vegetarian Quinoa Jambalaya
1 ½ cups cooked beans (I used kidney beans but any kind would be fine)*
1 cup faux sausage crumbles**
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup onion, chopped
¼ cup bell pepper, chopped
¼ cup celery, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ cup tomatoes, diced
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
1-2 teaspoons Tabasco
¾ cup quinoa
1 ½ cups vegetables broth
1 ½ cups water
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon oregano flakes
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon black pepper
In a large skillet sauté the vegetables in the oil for a few minutes then stir in the dry quinoa.  After the quinoa has been coated by the oil and vegetables stir in the remaining ingredients and cover the skillet.  Let steam 20-30 minutes or until the quinoa is soft, stirring occasionally.

*Freshly cooked beans are best, is you are using canned beans please drain and rinse them before adding them to this recipe.
**Faux sausage is available in most freezer sections of grocery stores by the rest of the vegetarian “fake meat,” products.  Also, I have recently discovered a faux sausage that has become my favorite, it is not frozen but instead is usually found in the refrigerated section of the produce isle.  It tastes great and the soy in it is non-genetically modified! It’s called Gimme Lean and if you choose to use this you’ll have to brown the faux sausage in a bit of oil first then remove it from the skillet and continue on with the recipe as described (stirring the browned and crumpled faux sausage in just after the quinoa).
