There are so many things I love about this meal:
So easy-Hooray for the slow-cooker!
Left-overs are even better the next day!
Did I mention easy?!
There really isn't any more to say, is there? I'm at a loss for words. Here is the recipe. Enjoy!
Red Beans and Rice
(ever so slightly adapted from Our Best Bites)
1 lb. dry red kidney beans, rinsed and sorted
5 c. water
5 regular bouillon cubes - (low sodium if you can find it & I usually use chicken)
1 pkg. (12 oz. or so) smoked sausage
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. Cajun or Creole seasoning
3/4 tsp. cumin
3/4 tsp. oregano
1/8-1/4 tsp. cinnamon (put it in!)
1/2 tsp. smoked paprikaCombine all ingredients in a crock pot and cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 6-7 hours.
When beans are tender, mash about 85% of them against the side of the crock pot. Give them a taste and add any extra seasonings if you need to, particularly more Cajun seasoning or salt and pepper. Add a little more water if you want it thicker. Replace lid and set heat to low or warm.
For the rice:
In a medium saucepan, bring 4 c. water, 1 Tbsp. white vinegar, and 2 c. of white rice to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and steam for 20 minutes.
