A Kinda Sorta Red Beans and Rice Recipe

What do I mean by a “Kinda Sorta Red Beans and Rice Recipe?” Well, it kinda tastes like an ‘official’ red beans and rice dish but it sorta doesn’t just have red beans in it…or smoked sausage. No, I didn’t use some weird bean substitute (like tofu), there’s actual beans in there and the smoked sausage was replaced with some lamb merguez sausage that I had in my freezer. You see, sometimes necessity is the mother of invention. I NEEDED a pot of red beans and rice and I scrounged my cupboards and freezer for ingredients. You’re gonna want to stay with me on this because I’ve got a really nice giveaway for you in this post.

I recently received a box of RiceSelect™ rices and they asked me to come up with a recipe utilizing one of their rice blends showing how I eat healthy while enjoying the foods of the world. I like the fact that you can buy a single container of rice and get a great blend of rices and/or grains in one package. It saves me from having to do all the mixing myself. (Not that I do that a lot, but sometimes it’s nice to have a little more variety on your fork than just a pile of plain ol’ rice.)

They sent me a container of each of their three blends: Royal Blend® with Brown and Red and Wild Rice (which contains pre-cooked brown, wild and red rice); Royal Blend® with Flaxseed (which contains Texmati® light brown rice, whole wheat pearl couscous, brown flaxseed and black lentils)  and Royal Blend® with Quinoa (which contains Texmati Light Brown Rice, red quinoa and freekah). I tried them all, but my favorite is the brown, red and wild rice mixture. These combinations give you lots of different textures and flavors with each bite, plus all the mixtures cook in under 20 minutes.

Easy Red Beans and Rice Recipe

Back to the red beans and rice recipe. Once I received the box, I was smacked upside the head with a craving for red beans and rice. Maybe because I haven’t had any in so long and probably because I have a trip coming up to New Orleans, next month. What’s a girl to do, but satisfy those cravings. There aren’t too many other dishes that make rice one of the star players. It is called red beans and rice after all.

To the cupboards and freezer I went, looking for the ingredients I needed.  The closest thing I found to red beans, was a package of cassoulet beans (hey, there’s some red ones in there) and my two choices of sausage were linguica or lamb merguez (yes, food bloggers keep some seriously strange ingredients on hand). I opted for the lamb.

Red beans and rice is a ridiculously easy dish to make – 2 pots and a lot of cooking time is all it takes to feed an army of people, or yourself for a few days. By the way…red beans and rice freezes really well. So portion it out into zip top bags and you’ll have a great meal that you can re-heat in minutes on one of those nights when you don’t feel like cooking.

A dish like this only really requires a few things to give you that authentic flavor (of course I’m not from NOLA, so I’m sure those people will tell you/me that we’re wrong) – cajun spices and smoked ham hocks. Those two things are the strongest flavors in the dish. Using a mixture of dried beans gave me the same texture as using all red beans (you can used canned red beans, but you don’t cook it as long so I don’t think the flavors are as intense…but they work). The lamb merguez gave the dish a slightly different meaty flavor, but didn’t compete with the smoky ham flavor that came from the hocks. So what I’m trying to say is…don’t be afraid to make some substitutions in dishes. Use the stuff you already have.

Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 1 Pound Dried Cassoulet Beans (or dried red beans, for authenticity)
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons Bacon Fat (or olive oil - amount depends on fat content of your sausage)
  • 6½ Ounces Lamb Merguez Sausage (cut into 1 inch pieces)(or smoked sausage of your choice)

  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1½ - 2 Pounds Smoked Ham Hocks
  • 4 Cups Vegetable Stock
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 2 Cups (uncooked) Royal Blend with Brown, Red & Wild Rice
  • Parsley (optional)

  2. Drain the water from the beans and set them aside.
  3. Drop the fat into a large Dutch oven and heat over medium high heat.
  4. Once melted, add the sausage to the pan and cook until browned (about 5 minutes).
  5. Remove the sausage from the pan and set it aside.
  6. Add the onions, celery and pepper to the pan and cook for 5-8 minutes or until the onion begins to soften. Stir occasionally to keep things from sticking to the pan.
  7. Add the garlic, salt, pepper, cajun seasoning and bay leaves to the cooking vegetables and give everything a good stir.
  8. Nestle the ham hocks into the vegetables then pour in the beans.
  9. Carefully add the stock and water to the pan and stir to mix things up.
  10. Bring everything to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer.
  11. Cook for 90 minutes and stir from time to time to keep the beans from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  12. Add the sausage, and its drippings, back to the pan and stir. Cook for another 90 minutes at a simmer. Continue to stir it from time to time.
  13. While the pot of beans if finishing up, cook the rice according to package directions.
  14. Once the beans are done, remove the bay leaves and throw them away. Then pull out the ham hocks, remove the meat from them then chop it up and stir it back into the pot.
  15. Serve the red beans and rice in a bowl and garnish with parsley or chopped green onions.

Takikomi Gohan is our favorite, I would use RiceSelect Royal blend to make it.

I wanna make a rice pilaf type thing from the brown/red/wild rice blend!

Billie @ Rowell Reviews October 13, 2013 at 7:26 pm

I love chicken fried rice. I would want to try the Arborio variety.

Girlfriend! I am FROM new Orleans and let me tell you; one thing you will find out is that New orleans recipes allow for a very wide range of variation. You are right in the tradition. I too would make red beabs and rice but it would come out completely differently! I’d try to use that Brown and Red and Wild Rice just for fun!

I make a mean rice curry dish. I’d love to try the RiceSelect Royal Blend with Red Quinoa.

Red Beans and Rice – of course I immediately thought of the words to the song “Baby Got Back” -“… red beans and rice didn’t miss her…” Sorry about that, I could not resist. I’m not familiar with this brand, but their combos sound great. They must each have remarkably textural variety. I think I’d use the Royal Blend® with Brown and Red and Wild Rice as a base for a poultry stuffing. Yup, that’s it.

Great ideas to make with rice

April G October 8, 2013 at 8:15 pm

Rice pudding. I have such a sweet tooth, and home made rice pudding is the BEST!

Connie Sherretts October 8, 2013 at 6:52 pm

I’d try the Royal Blend with Quinoa in my old stand by, broccoli rice and cheese casserole.

My favorite rice dish is to include it in my Chicken Burritos, I would use I would most like to try Texmati light brown rice because it cooks quickly

caryn October 8, 2013 at 10:21 am

yum, that looks good with the bigger beans! I’d use the blend with quinoa and freekah because I’ve been wanting to try making something with freekah but haven’t! I LOVE stuffed peppers with rice, veggies, tomatoes, etc… it’s another one of those recipes you can sort of throw whatever you have into. I bet it would be yummy with a mixed rice like that.

Jennifer October 8, 2013 at 7:25 am

I want to try the Royal blend with chicken, mushrooms, green chiles and cheese!

Veronique Daoust October 8, 2013 at 7:20 am

My favorite rice dish is Risotto! I love a good risotto with roasted mushrooms, using the Rice Select Arborio rice.
