Veg Jambalaya

Whether you never eat meat, like to do “Meatless Mondays”, or simply like to have a meatless meal every now and then (for health or $ reasons, or both) – I am the latter – here’s a recipe to try: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/veg-jambalaya

Here are the ingredients I used:  2013_1123November20130005  You see I was fortunate enough to still have some of my mom’s home canned tomatoes on hand 🙂  There is one thing I’ve started to do differently with dishes that call for rice: cook it separately.  So those 2 cups of water in the ingredient list were placed in a pan with the rice and that was set to cooking while I combined the rest of the ingredients in the skillet.  I have had too many experiences of cooking rice in with other ingredients where the rice did not cook enough, so cooking it separately then stirring it in at the end seems the best way to go.  It takes an extra pan, but we’re always happy with the results: 2013_1123November20130009  We doused ours with Frank’s hot sauce, and though my husband would have preferred some chicken or shrimp added to the dish, he did agree that it was very good.
