I love dirty rice, and this Vegan Dirty Rice & Black-Eyed Peas recipe from The Full Helping definitely hits the spot. I’ve been missing out because dirty rice usually has some kind of pork in it, but this vegan variation is just as good as any traditional recipe that I’ve tasted. It’s spicy, but not too much so and offers just the right amount of comfort food feel and taste that I’m looking for this time of year. Instead of vegan bacon, I used tempeh, and it turned out fine. The recipe makes several other suggestions for substitutions as well.
