This vegan cajun rice recipe gets your veggies, starch, and protein in one bowl. I adapt this for my kids, who haven’t inherited my preference for tasty foods by limiting the cajun seasoning to 1 teaspoon. I like to serve this with veggie sausages, but it makes a complete meal on it’s own. We often have a hectic schedule when the kids start school in the fall. This is something I can make ahead pretty quickly, and warm it up when we get home. It gets even better the longer it sits!
Vegan Cajun Rice Recipe
- Prepare jasmine rice by bringing veggie stock to a boil. Add rice, and simmer while covered, for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and, fluff with fork, and set aside.
- In a large skillet, saute onions, garlic and peppers in oil for about 3 minutes. Gently stir in corn and beans, and cook for another 3 minutes.
- Add cajun seasoning, and mix well. Let cook an additional 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Not enough heat? Try adding a few drops of your favorite hot sauce or another teaspoon of cajun seasoning (or maybe both if you like it really spicy!)
- Mix in the rice, and coat well.
