Now, I’m excited to introduce my very first guest, Lori Gremillion of Magic Mike Spices.
Lori is a mom, juggler of three tiny humans. She’s the Magic Mike’s sales rep, delivery person, shelf stocker, food prepper, demonstration expert, social media princess, and brand keeper. She is a problem solver, advice giver, friend of many and a healthy life full of peppers promoter. She’s a majestic unicorn lover, with a stampeding turtle mindset. It’s my hair, I don’t care what you think kinda Queen. A music lover, grass mower, and free Icee giver. She feels lucky to wake up everyday and chase her wildest dreams.
“Figure Out This Food!”
I have a game on my Facebook page called “Figure Out This Food.” I post a close-up of a food item and the first three guesses get a shout-out here. Congratulations to Randy Zelinka for guessing “Rice.”
Hey young chefs! This is Kid Chef Eliana and it’s time for “Creative Cuisine.” This is a recipe for my “Vegan Jambalaya.”
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 c. trinity (chopped mix of 1 bell peppers, 1 onion, and 2 stalks celery)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 lb. Tofurky andouille sausage, cut into 1/2 in. rounds
8 oz. chicken seitan, cubed
1 c. canned diced tomatoes
1 c. water
1 tbsp. Creole seasoning
1 c. long-grain, white rice
1 tbsp. green onions, chopped
In a large pot over medium heat, sauté trinity in olive oil. Add garlic, Tofurky andouille, and chicken seitan. Cook until sausage is brown. Stir in remaining ingredients except green onions. Cook for 30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed by rice. Garnish with green onions. Serves 6-8.
