It’s that time of year again for the Black History Month Virtual Potluck! I can’t believe it’s already February! January really flew by for me.

Well, here we are again with an array of amazing and talented people who are bringing amazing food to the potluck!

So many flavorful dishes to share with you this year. It is truly a treat to have all these wonderful dishes in celebration of Black History Month. If you missed previous years, don’t worry you can check them out here, here, and here.

But this year we decided to switch it up a bit and share vegan or vegetarian dishes.

This year I’m bringing Vegan Dirty Rice.

The theme was perfect because starting in January, I have been trying to eat vegan meals. I was intrigued to give it a try after watching the movie, The Game Changers. This movie was a real eye-opener. Now, I’m not saying it has been easy but I have been enjoying the journey.

This Vegan Dirty Rice recipe is unbelievably flavorful and you can’t even tell that it is meatless! It also comes together very quickly. Win-Win!

Now if you are wondering what is dirty rice, well dirty rice is a traditional Louisiana Creole dish made from white rice which gets its name “dirty”  from the color of the rice from being cooked with meat, vegetables, and the various seasonings.

There are traditional ingredients for dirty rice such as gizzards but I love how you can customize dirty rice to cater to your family’s preference. That is exactly what I did to make an all-time favorite into a vegan recipe.

HOW TO MAKE DIRTY RICE

For this version of dirty rice, I used plant-based ground. I start by browning the plant-based ground in my new favorite skillet. Once browned drain, I add in the vegetables to soften. Next, I had in all the seasonings and make sure they are fully incorporated then deglaze the pan.  Finally, I add the cooked rice and a bit more broth and allowed the flavors to come together and heat the rice. If you want to substitute white rice for brown rice or quinoa feel free to do so.

While dirty rice is a perfect complete meal on its own, my family sometimes serves it as a side dish.

Another good thing about dirty rice is that it’s a one-pot meal, which means fewer dishes on a busy weeknight!
