Red Beans and Rice…

On our recent trip to New Orleans, we discovered the locals’ weekly Monday tradition of Red Beans and Rice. My version is a nicely spiced, hearty bowl of beans, sausage and just enough rice on the side to round it all out.

My latest post for the St. Petersburg Foodies website has all the details on the history behind the tradition and how you can make this dish at home; to read more, click here.

    Hi Michelle, I finally made the red beans and rice and it was delicious! Just the right amount of seasoning and spice. I made it with the buttered rice and some warm, crusty french bread on the coldest of days and it was perfect. I soaked the beans for 48 hours, which was something I had never tried before (soaking beans) and I was grateful for the tip because they were just the right texture after cooking. Next time, I won’t wait so long to make this. Thank you for sharing!

      Thanks for giving a try, Amanda! I’m always grateful to have feedback on the recipes I post; glad to hear that everything turned out well! Crusty French bread sounds alongside sounds amazing. This really is the perfect weather for this dish. 😉
