Two passionate Vanlife cooks and the creators of Vanlife Eats.

This vegetarian jambalaya is a favourite vanlife meal for Emily from Camper Vibe, our featured vanlifers. You can read their feature here. The jambalaya originates from Loiusiana, it is said the dish comes from a fusion of different cuisines and cultures. What better dish for vanlifers than one that brings communities together?!

Best of all this vegetarian jambalaya can be as mild or spicy as you like it, and can include whatever veg you like, a great way for using up leftovers. Rice stores well in a van so can be a great option for meals like this. If you’re travelling solo you can eat the leftovers the next day, or if like Lou and Emily, one eats meat and one doesn’t then you can always add any meat separately.

A classic cajun inspired dish originating from Louisiana. This is enough for 2 people and sometimes unless I’m hungry there is some left over for lunch the next day

  • Stir every 5 minutes or so to prevent the rice from sticking and burning.


You can also of course do this pure veg or add real chorizo and chicken to it.
It’s a great easy meal, takes around 30-40 mins to cook and is super tasty as well as filling.
