Cook plant-based sausage according to package directions
In a large pan, heat oil or water over medium-high heat, add onion, garlic, celery and bell peppers. Saute for 5 minutes. Add the smoked paprika, thyme, oregano and saute 1 more minute.
Add the crushed tomatoes, rice, and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, then cover partially and simmer on low for 20-25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so to keep the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
In the last 5 minutes, add the beans and vegan sausage and cook until warmed through. Serve with toppings of choice.
