Getting "Tasty" in August!

Wow, it's August already!  Time sure does fly when you're cooking good food.  It's been about two weeks since I've posted something tasty but I've been looking for a Southern Veg compound to grow my food and teach classes on how to make these tasty meals you see here on the video.  I've seen two places already and they have awesome kitchens and yards.  Before the end of the year you will be seeing a new space for Southern Vegetarian Living along with products and cooking classes, so look out.  Now, for this weeks video and recipe.  I have used products from a company called Tasty Bite, which sells prepackaged vegetarian and vegan Indian food that taste really great.  They found me on twitter and wondered could I make something "Southern" from their products.  Here is what I came up with.  Hope ya'll enjoy!  
P.S.  If there are any other food companies that are interested in me "Southernizing" their vegetarian/vegan products hit me up at any of the links to your right or e-mail me at germaine@southernvegchronicles.com


“Good Korma” Vegan Jambalaya
An Indian twist to a Southern classic

Tasty Bite- Good Korma sauce
Tasty Bite- Basmati Rice
Small onion chopped
Small bell pepper chopped
2 to 3 cloves of garlic
2 green onions chopped

Method:

Amazing and yummy idea! I love the Tasty Bite Indian Foods - especially the Bombay Potatoes. I'm so glad they are considering something Southern. Everyone needs a veggie jambalaya dish on their shelf! Sounds like you had quite a few "little helpers" with you. Thanks for the idea and the tweets! --Veggie Val
