Super Spicy Jambalaya [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


  • Olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 Poblano pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeño, diced (with or without seeds depending on your preference for spice)
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
  • 1 14-ounce can of fire-roasted tomatoes, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons vegan hot sauce
  • 3 tablespoons liquid aminos or soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon smoked chili pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 15,5-ounce can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15.5-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups of brown rice (uncooked)
  • Green onions for topping, chopped



  1. Into a large, heavy bottom Dutch oven or stock pot, add 1-2 tablespoon of olive oil to coat your pan. Add the onion and peppers. Cook, stirring often, for about 6 minutes or until softened a bit.
  2. Add your garlic and jalapeño and cook for an additional minute. Then, add the dry spices and stir to coat the vegetables. Cook the spices for 2-3 minutes to remove the raw flavor, then proceed to add the rice.
  3. Stir well to ensure that the rice is distributed throughout the pan. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low and cover your pan. Cook for 40-45 minutes, stirring frequently, or until the rice is tender and cooked through.
  4. Finally, add your drained beans and cook for another 4 minutes or so to heat them through. Spoon into bowl and garnish with chopped green onions.
