New Orleans Red Beans & Rice

From Chef Toni’s Cooking Adventures


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion , diced
  • 1 small green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 (16 ounce) can reduced sodium chicken broth
  • Bay leaf
  • 1 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 3 (15 1/2 ounce) can of small red beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 pound reduced-fat smoked sausage sliced into bite size pieces
  • 6 cups hot cooked rice, white or brown


n a large pot, warm the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic and saute until they are soft and tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in the broth, bay leaf, thyme and beans and bring mixture to a boil. Leaving the pot on the stove, partially mash the bean mixture with a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon, leaving most of the beans whole. Stir in the sausage, then cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium- low.

Simmer the mixture, covered for 10 minutes, then uncovered for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the bay leaf, and serve the beans over hot rice.
