At the heart of many cuisines is a set of aromatics—fragrant vegetables that form the base of a dish’s flavor profile. In French cooking, it’s mirepoix (carrot, onion and celery). Similarly, in the Creole tradition of the Southern U.S., it’s bell pepper, onion and celery, collectively referred to as the “holy trinity.” We’re sticking with tradition here and using these aromatics, along with okra (which acts as a natural thickener), to create a hearty, authentic vegetable jambalaya.
