I never have made or tasted Jambalaya before so I'm not sure what to compare to, but I thought this recipe turned out delicious. It was super easy to make, the only adjustments I made was using beer instead of veg stock as suggested, and adding oregano, 2 tbsp vegan worcestshire, and garlic. My only complaint was that mine turned out a little oily, next time I am going to steam the vegetables, I don't think it will make much of a difference since it's already so flavorful.


I made this but I added tempeh and used a bottle of beer instead of broth/water. I just measured by eye and it seemed to work fine.


This recipe says to add veg broth but it is not listed in the ingredients - how much???

30 ounces. That's two 15 ounce cans of broth. Or use the soy-milk like cartons of broth, which are are 32 ounces, which would be fine also.

Thanks for catching it.
