i have a Cajun/creole party to attend in a couple weeks. Anyone have a good recipe they can share? Also, does anyone like "follow your heart vegan gourmet" cheddar cheese? I bought some and dont care for it. Would be happy to give to someone who will use it.

1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 ribs celery, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups uncooked rice
1 6 oz can tomato paste
5 cups vegetable broth
2 zucchinis, sliced
1 1/2 cups okra, fresh or frozen)
1 can diced tomatoes OR 4 large tomatoes, diced
1 cup mock meat, such as Gimme Lean or Morningstar Farms Crumbles (optional)
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne (or to taste)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp seasoned salt

In a large bowl, mix tomato paste with vegetable broth until smooth and set aside. In a large pot, saute onion, garlic, celery and green pepper until slightly soft, about 5 minutes.
Add uncooked rice and allow rice to toast for one minute, stirring. Add tomato and broth mixture. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a separate skillet, saute the okra, zucchini and mock meat until just barely cooked, about 3-5 minutes.
After the rice has cooked about 10 minutes, add the sauteed mock meat and veggies, spices and diced tomatoes, stirring well. Cover, and allow to simmer 10-15 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until veggies are fully cooked and rice is soft. Serve with hot sauce if desired, and enjoy!
