Brown Rice Jambalaya [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan






  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3-4 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 4 vegan sausages (optional)


  1. Bring the vegetable stock to a boil over high heat. Rinse the rice thoroughly and add to the vegetable stock, cooking according to the instructions on your packet.
  2. Cook the sausages according to the instructions (optional).
  3. In a large pan, add the oil over medium heat. Then add the onion with a pinch of salt, stirring until it starts to soften and get translucent (about 4-5 minutes).
  4. Add the garlic and sautée for a further 1-2 minutes. Then add the vegetables, tomato paste, seasonings, and a splash of water. Mix well.
  5. Lower the heat to low-medium and cover. Cook the veggies for around 10-12 minutes until they have started to soften. Make sure to stir every few minutes and add more water if the mixture begins to stick.
  6. Once the rice is done cooking, drain and add to the pan with the veggies. Mix well and add a splash of water to loosen the mixture if needed.


Heat through for a couple minutes, season to taste and serve immediately with your choice of sausage.





Interesting, innovative dishes that will win over even the pickiest eaters. As a relatively new vegan, I love the challenge of creating interesting, exciting dishes that even the staunchest meat eaters will like. I moved from Arizona to Leicester, England several years ago and created Thevegantwist.com to provide some interesting vegan recipes and highlight vegan-friendly restaurants along the way. I hope to make it easier for local vegans like me and hopefully inspire others to give veganism a go!

Yummy. Can anything replace celery? Or just not add it?

You could definitely leave it out - or add some other crunchy vegetable so you still get the same texture (like radish maybe?).
