Louisiana-Style Red Beans & Rice

Red beans & rice is a traditional Creole dish made with red beans, veggies, and, often, leftover pork bones. It's traditionally made with soaked dried beans and simmered for hours, but this recipe uses some shortcuts so you can have it on the table in under an hour. And instead of using a ham hock, we sauté andouille sausage. If you've got access to ham hock, it'll add a whole new dimension to the dish.


- 1 can (15 oz) red kidney beans

- 1 cup uncooked white rice

- 1 onion, diced

- 1 green bell pepper, diced

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 tbsp olive oil

- 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning

- 1 tsp dried thyme

- 1 tsp dried oregano

- 1 tsp dried basil

- Salt and black pepper to taste

- 2 cups water


1. In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onions and green bell pepper and sauté for 3-4 minutes until softened.


2. Add minced garlic and sauté for an additional minute.


3. Add the can of red kidney beans (with liquid) to the pot and stir in Cajun seasoning, dried thyme, oregano, and basil.


4. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Stir well to combine all ingredients.


5. Pour in 2 cups of water and bring to a boil.


6. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and let the beans simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.


7. While the beans are cooking, prepare the rice according to package instructions.


8. Once the beans are cooked and the liquid has thickened, remove from heat and let it cool for a few minutes.


9. Serve the Louisiana-style red beans over a bed of cooked white rice. Garnish with chopped green onions and additional Cajun seasoning, if desired.
