I don’t think I’ve seen vegan jambalaya as an option on a restaurant menu, so let’s just make it ourselves! This hearty dish is perfect winter comfort food. I made a batch in the slow cooker and it lasted for lunch for the rest of the week.


  • 1 yellow onion, diced

  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 red pepper, diced

  • 1 jalapeno, diced

  • 4 pieces of celery, chopped

  • 2 cups of uncooked rice

  • 1 can of crushed tomatoes (796mL)

  • 1 can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained)

  • 1 can of romano beans (rinsed and drained)

  • 3 tablespoons of tamari

  • 1 tablespoon of paprika

  • 1 tablespoon of oregano

  • Dash of salt to taste

  • 4 cups of water


    Put all ingredients into the slow cooker on high heat. Cook for 3 hours, or until the rice is cooked all the way through.
