red-beans-and-riceJana from Thrice The Spice here with a homemade version of Red Beans and Rice!  In the past, I have either made the boxed variety, or had this as a side dish at Popeye’s. I like their version, so I wanted to try to recreate my own! This didn’t taste exactly like that, but it was SO good!  I mixed the rice (I used brown) in with the bean mixture for the leftovers, and it was even better.  This recipe used dried beans. If you don’t remember to soak them overnight, you can do the quick soaking method listed on the back of the bag. This is what I ended up doing, and it worked well.  I found this recipe on All Recipes.

Red Beans and Rice

2 cups dried red beans
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 pound smoked sausage, smoked
1 cup diced ham
4 cups cooked rice

1. Soak the beans in water overnight.

2. Drain the beans, and add them to a slow cooker. Cover with water, and stir in the garlic, onion, salt, sugar, cayenne pepper, and cumin.  Add the diced ham, and cook on low heat for 4-5 hours.  Stir in the smoke sausage for the last 30 minutes.

3. Using a potato masher or a fork, mash the beans as much as you would like. I mashed about half, leaving some whole beans.

4. Stir in the rice, and serve!


About this site

A disease is a particular abnormal condition, a disorder of a structure or function, that affects part or all of an organism. The causal study of disease is called pathology. Disease is often construed as a medical condition associated with specific symptoms and signs. It may be caused by factors originally from an external source, such as infectious disease, or it may be caused by internal dysfunctions, such as autoimmune diseases. In humans, "disease" is often used more broadly to refer to any condition that causes pain, dysfunction, distress, social problems, or death to the person afflicted, or similar problems for those in contact with the person. In this broader sense, it sometimes includes injuries, disabilities, disorders, syndromes, infections, isolated symptoms, deviant behaviors, and atypical variations of structure and function, while in other contexts and for other purposes these may be considered distinguishable categories. Diseases usually affect people not only physically, but also emotionally, as contracting and living with a disease can alter one's perspective on life, and one's personality.
