Any suggestions for cajun/creole vegetarian?

shywri1ter | Jul 20, 200807:00 AM     15

I have a vegetarian guest coming to New Orleans (and the US!) for the first time. While there are many places in & around New Orleans where she can eat well, I would really love for her to get a real taste of the local cuisines -- but it's hard to find etoufees, gumbos or the like that don't start with pork or seafood!

Any ideas where we might find, say, vegetarian red beans & rice, or a meatless jambalaya, that sort of thing? Just vegetarian, so no meat or seafood of any sort, but eggs, dairy etc are fine.

Many thanks for any suggestions!
