This version of dirty rice can be made with your favorite meatless ground burger or veggie ground burger. Cooking time does not include the brown rice which should be made according to box instructions.
In a dry skillet, brown the flour, stirring constantly, until light brown in color (patience pays off in flavor later).
In a separate skillet, saute the onion, celery and bell pepper, in 3 tablespoons of oil for 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Add to the flour and mix well.
Brown the mushrooms in 3 teaspoons of oil. Add the veggie burger crumbles and brown well with the mushrooms for 10 minutes. Add to the onion and flour mixture and saute for another 10 minutes. Add the water and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring often. The mixture should be fairly thick. Add the remaining ingredients, mix well.
