oil, as needed
1 large yellow onion, chopped
3 ribs celery, finely chopped
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
2 (12 ounce) packages vegan chorizo (I use Soyrizo) (or 1 package vegan chorizo and 1 package vegan chicken)
2-3 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
2 (15 ounce) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (15 ounce) can okra, drained and rinsed
hot sauce, to taste, optional
1. Heat some oil in a pot over meduim-high heat. Add onion, celery, and bell pepper to heated pot and stir semi-frequently until everything is nice and soft, about 5 minutes.
2. Add the salt and cook for a minute or two longer, stirring frequently. Add the vegan chorizo and cook for 5 minutes. Stir well and cover for 5 more minutes, stirring once or twice.
3. Add seasoning, okra, tomatoes and hot sauce (if using), stirring well. Cover and cook once more for 5-10 minutes, stirring somewhat frequently until it begins to bubble and it looks and tastes like it's ready to eat.
You could also seed (or not) and finely dice a jalapeño and add it in with the onion, bell pepper and celery if you want an extra kick. I haven't tried it, since my Fiancée isn't a big fan of spicy food, but I'd imagine it would taste really good. Enjoy!
