Yay, I finally cooked! I do not like red beans and rice so I don’t eat them but Mr. Meat Eater loves them. He likes any beans and rice ~ I think since he spent so much time in the Caribbean. I try to make them once in awhile and I have something else for dinner.
This was a super easy recipe to make and it makes a huge amount so I was able to divide it up and freeze some. I used Aidell’s Andouille Sausage since it’s all natural. Many recipes call for tomatoes, etc., but this one does not. I was a little leery of adding the beans right from the package but they turned out perfect ~ soft but not mushy. I also went a little heavy on the seasoning but only because I knew I wouldn’t be eating it. The recipe called for a 7 hour cooking time but I let it go 8 hours.
Mr. Meat Eater ate three bowls so it was a success.
