I'm an a-hole right with you because none of these ideas sound tasty or like jambalaya

Looks like jambalaya to me. I'd eat it.

I also could live the rest of my life without most meats and be okay though.

re: Vegetarian Jambalaya-Is this doable?


Thanks!

Unfortunately some people can't stand to have one meal without meat and can't put aside their thoughts about jambalaya long enough to appreciate someone has recreated the dish to fit their dietary preferences.

OBVIOUSLY it's not going to the same thing a chicken and sausage jambalaya... Because it's not chicken and sausage. Just eat it for what it is, fricking food. And it tastes good so swallow your pride (and food) for the 10 minutes it will take you to inhale your plate. Wash it down with (dairy) ice cream for all I care.

Some people just aren't open minded.

It would be nice if we could have a decent vegetarian or vegan thread without people constantly trolling or bringing in negative comments.

Wishful thinking.

LL, my venting is not meant towards you. It's meant for the people in this thread and similar threads.

Jambalaya is a bastardization of Paella. So there is no reason someone can't bastardize jambalaya. Actually, bastardizing of any type food should be encouraged. That's how we end up with good, new foods.

I am not mad.

You answered wrong... Because it is possible to make. I can tell you because now I have tried. What was wrong about the batch you made?

re: Vegetarian Jambalaya-Is this doable?


jambalaya contains 3 main ingredients: meat, veggies, rice. Is it possible to make something that resembles jambalaya without meat? sure, but that doesn't make it jambalaya

Why not use fried tofu? I eat pad thai with fried tofu all time and it is wonderful and I don't miss the meat at all. )I am not a big meat eater anyway)

re: Vegetarian Jambalaya-Is this doable?


I needed to make a Cajun style dish for a vegetarian a few years ago, and I decided the closest I could come would be something like a jambalaya. It may have had nothing to do with authenticity, but it tasted damn good. I sauteed (in butter and olive oil) two kinds of mushrooms, diced red, yellow, and orange bell peppers, onions, garlic. Toasted pine nuts, shredded carrots added near the end of cooking so they'd stay crispy, and seasoned with lots of Tony's.

I've done that exact same dish for myself, but added leftover diced smoked sausage and leftover chicken. Dat's good, cher.

Just didn't, not against it though. Wasn't sure how to make the tofu work with the dish. I will probably try it at some point.

I love fried tofu! But I don't eat tofu very often in general. I prefer when other people cook it. I haven't quite mastered it yet... Any suggestions?

Yeah, I love tofu in pad thai and in hot and sour soup. But every time I've bought it to use at home, I open the fridge and stare at it and put it back. Repeatedly. And then finally it goes bad and I can throw it away and not have to look at it anymore.

Oh, and jasmine or basmati rice in my faux jambalaya.
