This is a yummy recipe and it reheats really well! Remember, it's jambalaya and you can throw about anything in there. The original recipe called for turkey sausage and shrimp. I substituted carrots and veggie sausage and ti don't miss a thing!:carrot:

You will need:
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 cup diced carrots
1 package Morning Star Farms Veggie Italian Style Sausage
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp dried thyme
tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
1 cups uncooked brown rice
14-oz can diced tomatoes, drained
6 cups vegetable broth

Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, celery, peppers and carrots and cook, stirring until onion is soft and translucent (about 5 minutes). Add veggie sausage, chili powder, thyme, cayenne and salt. Stir to combine and cook for about 1 minute. Add tomatoes, broth and rice. Bring mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to low, cover and cook until rice is tender, stirring occasionally, about 45 minutes.
