My Husband's favorite meal :-D My Mother-in-Law asked me if it was an old family recipe and I told her it was something I made up, I think I impressed her a little. I know my Father-in-Law is a fan!

How to Make Not Your Average Red Beans & Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare brown rice per directions on package. I use Chicken broth and a stick of butter to add a hearty flavor to the beans and rice.
  2. Prepare vegetables: Dice carrots, celery, onion and set aside.
  3. Brown sausage in a frying pan with a tablespoon of olive oil.
  4. After sausage is browned, add vegetables: Carrot, celery, onion and frozen diced green bell peppers. Add salt and pepper to taste. Saute for at least 20 minutes on low/medium heat or until carrots are al dente
  5. When vegetables are cooked, add diced tomatoes, kidney beans and tomato sauce. Let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes on low and add salt and pepper to taste again, because the beans, tomatoes and sauce will wash out the flavors.
  6. When rice is fully cooked, add to the sausage, veggie, tomato mixture. Stir ingredients and let set for another 10 minutes, covered.
  7. Serve :-)
