Vegetarian red beans?

I see Gumbo Shop do one - not sure whether they have it one their menu permanently or whether it's a special, but do other places do a vegetarian version of red beans & rice?

The Gumbo Shop has it regularly.

They also have a vegetarian Gumbo z'herbes. This is not like seafood gumbo without seafood; it's a greens stew. It's a very old New Orleans tradition; always ask if it's vegetarian, though.

Several searches turned up a mention of Praline Connection, a restaurant in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood just below the Quarter. Always ask, though, because the vegetarian food could have been two cooks ago....

Here is a discussion of vegetarian food on chowhound: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/540477.

My fav veg place is Meals from the Heart Cafe way down in the French Market where they have outdoor covered food booths with counters. They have a veg black bean and rice soup dish which is very good,
