New Orleans Red Beans and Rice

Joy Wilson @ Joy the Baker

Ingredients

  • 1 pound dried red beans, rinsed and picked through for stones
  • 1/3 cup diced pancetta
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 green or red bell pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch cayenne or a few dashes of Tony Chachere Seasoning
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 pound cooked smoked sausage cut into 1-inch pieces
  • about 10 cups chicken stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 cups cooked white rice
  • chopped green onions, garnish

Instructions

  1. Place clean dried beans in a medium pot and cover with room temperature water. Allow to soak overnight before making the beans.
  2. If you don’t have time to soak the beans overnight, don’t fret. Place the clean dried beans in a medium pot and cover with room temperature water. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. As soon as the beans boil, cover, remove from heat, and allow to soak for 1 hour. Carry on with the recipe.
  3. In a large soup pot over medium heat, cook pancetta until very well crisp, about 6 minutes.
  4. Add the onions, celery, and bell pepper and cook until vegetables are very well done, about 8 minutes.
  5. Add salt, pepper, and cayenne or Tony Chachere Seasoning and stir to combine.
  6. Stir in the garlic, parsley, thyme, and sliced sausage. Increase heat to medium-high and cook until the sausage is well browned, about 5 minutes. Stir frequently.
  7. Add the softened beans to the pot, the stock, and bay leaves. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for about 2 hours, uncovered, until the beans are well softened.
  8. Taste and season with more salt or pepper.
  9. For a slightly smoother consistency, blend about 1/3 of bean and sausage mixture in a blender or food processor and return to the pot. This way, some of the beans will be ground smooth and some will be kept whole, creating a really lovely consistency. You can also smooth out some of the beans by mashing them against the side of the pan once they’re softened, but I like the bender method best.
  10. Serve beans with white rice and a hearty garish of green onions.

Vegetarian Chili with Roasted Chilies

Todd & Diane @ White On Rice Couple

Ingredients

(Ingredients modified to include Aldi brand name)

  • 1 medium anaheim chili
  • 1 15 oz can of Dakota’s Pride red beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 large carrot, small dice, about 1/2 cup
  • 2 stalks celery, cleaned & ends trimmed. Small dice, about 1/2 cup
  • 1 red bell pepper, small dice, about 1 cup
  • 1 small onion, minced, about 1 cup
  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Carlini olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of Fusia soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of Stonemill Essentials ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of Stonemill Essentials chili powder
  • 1/2 cup Happy Harvest crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup of Chef’s Cupboard vegetable broth

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Wash chili pepper, pat dry all outside moisture. Rub with bit of olive oil to coat the chili pepper. Put on sheet pan and roast in oven for about 15 minutes, turning frequently for even roast. Roast chili pepper till the skin starts to bubble and char. Then remove pepper from oven and place in plastic bag for about 15 minutes. The steam will release the skin from the meat of the pepper. Remove skin and seeds, discard. Dice the chili pepper, set aside.
  2. In heated medium saucepan, add olive oil till hot. Then add onions and garlic and cook till they are soft and fragrant. Then add carrots. Cook carrots for about 5 minutes or until slightly softened.
  3. Add celery, red bell peppers and green chili. Cook for about 5 minutes or until soft.
  4. Add beans, vegetable broth, crushed tomatoes, soy sauce, cumin and chili powder. Stir pot well and let simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes.
  5. For best flavor, the chili tastes better the next day, once the beans absorbs all the spices.
