Red Beans and Rice

Red Beans and Rice

This is a great well known dish in the south. If you are not used to spicy foods, or you would like it a little less spicy, you can use a milder sausage (vs. Hot Link) and leave out the Cayenne Pepper.


1/4 c Olive Oil
3 Tbs Dried Minced Onion
1/4 tsp Dried Minced Garlic
2 Stalks Celery, sliced
1 lb. Hot Link Sausage, sliced
2 – 14 oz. cans Diced Tomato (with liquid)
2 c Rice, uncooked
2 Bay Leaves, crushed
1 Tbs Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbs Parsley, dried
1 tsp Thyme, dried
1/2 tsp Sage, dried
1 tsp Cajun Seasoning
2 cans Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
4 c Chicken Stock

Cajun Seasoning (makes 1 tsp)
1/4 tsp Saltwpid-20130318_193202.jpg
1/8 tsp Oregano
1/8 tsp Paprika
1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/8 tsp Black Pepper
1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp Chili Powder


In a large pot, saute the onion, garlic, and celery in hot oil until the onion is translucent. Add tomato and sausage, cook for a few minutes before adding in the rice and all the seasonings. Sir and cook a few more minutes to blend the spices throughout. Add kidney beans and chicken stock. Simmer until the rice is fully cooked, about 30 minutes.
