Vegan Jambalaya


You won't miss the meat in this healthy jambalaya recipe. Vegan smoked sausage takes its place while the classic "trinity" of vegetables—onion, red bell pepper and celery—get a kick from jalapeño peppers. And everything is cooked in one skillet, which means cleanup is a breeze!

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 6 ounces vegan spicy smoked sausage (such as Field Roast Smoked Apple Sage Sausage), casings removed, sausage chopped

  • 2 cups chopped onion

  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper

  • 1 cup chopped celery

  • 2 medium jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook, stirring often, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
