      I made this for hubby and I. Personally, I like meat in mine, but for a vegan dish, this tasted delightful. I loved the added zucchini & carrot (never tried that before in jambalaya). I halved the recipe since it was only the two of us. I didn't have the whole amount of the tomatoes to make half a batch, but that's okay because I don't care for them much, (I picked around the few chunks in there anyway). Thank you for posting this recipe. (Made for ZWT9-Cajun Holy Trinity challenge)

      Despite a lengthy ingredient list, this comes together quickly and easily and was a great weeknight meal. I was a little bit short on bell pepper so I filled in with green beans...probably not conventional but worked for our pepper-phobic kids! I used brown rice I had already cooked so I added only two cups of broth. I also increased the black-eyed peas to bump up the protein a bit. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 9, for the Gourmet Goddesses.
