Believe me, I love homemade recipes. But as a busy mom of three, I am no snob to semi-homemade. It’s so convenient to just open up the cabinet and grab a seasoning packet or a meal kit; then add something fresh to it and voila- you have yourself a meal in no time.

There are plenty of non-vegan shortcut options like this on the market. So recently, I decided to scout out my local grocery stores to find some vegan semi homemade options. I want to help you shake up dinner on those busy nights where you almost grab- yet another bowl of oats. BORING!

I was so excited to find that Zatarain’s Jambalaya Mix is vegan and believe me- anything but boring. It’s so easy to make with directions right on the box. I added Beyond Meat Plant Based Sausage to it and OH MY-is this vegan!? It was that good!

This shortcut vegan jambalaya is very customizable. You could add veggies to the mix, like some diced tomatoes or broccoli florets. You could add a can of red beans instead of the sausage for a protein and fiber boost. I garnished it with green onions and Tabasco Hot Sauce.

We ate the whole pot!

I hope you find this meal idea helpful! I plan to find many more vegan options like this because they are just so convenient for those super busy weeknights. Let me know what you think.

Happy Eating!
