Vegan “Jambalaya”

So there is a reason Jambalaya is in quotations, because I don’t need anyone telling me that its not jambalaya and not authentic to it’s Cajun roots. Trust me, I know that this recipe would make every grave in New Orleans turn over. This recipe is my experiment in taking a traditional jambalaya, and making it vegetarian and even vegan friendly.
