Healthy Red Beans and Rice
  • 1 pound dried red beans
  • 2 quarts hot water
  • 1 pound smoked turkey sausage, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bay leaf


  1. Put red beans in a large pot with enough water to cover by several inches. Soak 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Drain and rinse beans. Pour hot water into the pot. Add beans, sausage, onions, bell pepper, celery, cayenne pepper, salt, and bay leaf to the pot; stir. Place pot over medium heat, put a cover on the pot, and cook, stirring frequently, for 30 minutes.
