Not-So-Dirty Rice

This recipe is from the cookbook Vegan Planet by Robin Robertson.

Recipe: see page 232 of Vegan Planet.
'Dirty Rice' is a spicy side dish that goes well with barbecue. It gets it's name from the bits of
chicken liver that give it a brown color. That is replaced in this vegan recipe with a faux ground beef made from textured vegetable protein. This recipe has Tabasco sauce AND cayenne, so it is fairly hot.

Ingredients include rice, onion, green bell pepper, garlic, olive oil, vegetarian burger crumbles (I used Trader Joe's Beef-less Ground Beef), Tabasco sauce, cayenne and thyme.
