Crock Pot Vegetarian Jambalaya  

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything

With the Super Bowl just around the corner, I've been searching for some man-friendly filling food to eat during the game.

I immediately thought of jambalaya. But it’s traditionally full of shrimp and spicy sausage, so to make a vegetarian version of the classic I thought: Not possible.

I mean, what kind of replacement is there for sausage? My family enjoys their meat so the thought of a vegetarian jambalaya gave me visions of them digging through their bowls, scraping the bottom with their spoons – desperately looking for the meat!

This Crock Pot Vegetarian Jambalaya leaves you wanting nothing. Between the spicy sauce and the beans there's a deep and hearty flavor that's present in classic jambalaya.


Chopping peppers and onions

In my opinion, every good jambalaya starts with the trinity of onion, garlic, and green bell pepper.


I chose butter beans and red beans for their texture and flavor. The key ingredient here is the Fire Roasted Tomato Recipe Starter. There's so much flavor packed into that can that you can bypass a pantry full of seasonings! This jambalaya cooks all day, so the aroma of flavors will be floating around the house while the pre-game show is on.


Crockpot Vegetarian Jambalaya, ready to eat

Every one likes their jambalaya a different consistency. I like mine on the thick side, but if you like yours thinner just add a little water or vegetable broth. I like to serve mine in small bowls so everyone can get a small taste.


You won't be missing the meat in this satisfying vegetarian jambalaya!
