1. Mix-and-Match Jambalaya

This Mix-and-Match Jambalaya by Kathy Hester an easy dish to make for a dinner party, and it’s filling to boot. You can mix and match the proteins to your preference or to use what you have on hand. I like to use Italian sausage and chicken-flavored seitan, but you can use tempeh, tofu, or even red beans as the center attraction if you want. You can use white jasmine rice, but any rice will work. Brown rice will require a little more cooking time, but it adds tons of nutrients.
