Brown Rice 'n' Beans "Jumble-aya" ~pg. 123

VegCookbookClub July recipes from eat, drink & be vegan by Dreena Burton:

What a great one pot meal. All the ingredients I usually have in my pantry. The recipe called for file powder which I didn't have. But I didn't even miss it. The vegan Worcestershire sauce, thyme, oregano, paprika and cayenne gave this dish a smoky, spicy flavor. My rice took forever to get tender though. I added some Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce for some extra hot smokiness. My hubby and I almost ate the whole pot of this!


  1. I wanted to make this for the VegCookbook club, but I don't think I'll have enough time. I'll definitely try it though, it looks a lot like the the Jumbleaya from Veganomicon, which I love, although it takes a while to prepare.

    I've never seen filé powder anywhere, but it must have been a couple of years since I last checked.

  2. This was easy to make; just the rice takes a long time to cook!
