Stinkin' Easy Dirty Red Beans and Rice

Category: Main Dishes - Rice



This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet





Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4





Ingredients:

-----------------------------------------------------



* 1 1/2 cups of cooked rice (not sticky, like classic Uncle Bens)

* 1 can of red kidney beans

* 1/2 Trader Joes Vegan Chorizo (yeah, we love this stuff)

* 1 TBSP worchestshire sauce

* 2 TBSP liquid smoke

* 1/2 diced onion

* 1/2 diced green pepper

* Vegetable stock





Instructions:

-----------------------------------------------------



Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and pepper. Saute the mixture for 3 minutes. Reduce heat to a simmer. Add worchester and liquid smoke to the pan and stir into the vegetables. Add the rice, beans, and chorizo to the pan. Add vegetable stock in splash increments if it seems too dry for you liking. You may also add dabs of liquid smoke depending on how Cajun you like it. Cook the mixture on low for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.



Remove from heat and serve in bowls with some Franks Red Hot (accept no substitutes).

You're missing the celery and Tabasco sauce is better than Frank's. ;-)

Something to look out for with Worcestershire sauce: some brands contain anchovies.

And I thought Frank's had a dairy ingredient? I could be wrong.

This would be good with some brown rice rather than the processed Uncle Bens stuff, and "red beans" are traditionally a small red bean, not the more Midwestern kidney bean. But it looks good!!

Frank's Redhot is vegan.

I eat WAY too much of it though because I love it and put it on almost everything!



Ingredients: Aged Cayenne Red Peppers, Vinegar, Water, Salt, and Garlic Powder.

Two tablespoons of liquid smoke sounds like a lot, is it very strong tasting?

I'm also a huge fan of Frank's Redhot. I like Tabasco too, but the flavor of cayenne peppers wins over tabasco peppers.

If you don't like celery like me :P I'm not picky eater at all only celery and most corn, more so the creamed canned varieties I do not care for at all( I do rather like fresh corn on cob only though). I don't really mind celery if its minced finely in some foods or on rare occasions I may have ants on a log.



And while I do like Tabasco I also really love Frank's on certain dishes. I like the Tapito sauce too a lot like Tabasco its more peppery and less vinegary when I want to cut that out on a certain taste.

Sounds tasty and easy! I think I might do this (minus the "chorizo" since I don't have any...) Thanks!



ETA: I made it. I changed it a bit, well a lot actually... I had black beans and rice made already.

Sauteed red onion, green pepper and one clove garlic. Added the liquid smoke, vegan worstshire (sp) and some franks. Then added the rice and beans.



Quite tasty I must say. I think from now on I will be making beans and rice this way...

One of the ingredients is written as "1/2 Trader Joe's Vegan Chirizo (yeah, we lvoe this stuff)" 1/2 what? Teaspoon? Tablespoon? Cup? Gallon?

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Ah, ok. For my next question, is there a soy free version of TJ Chorizo?

Field roast makes a chipotle sausage that is similar and very good. I believe that it's soy free. It's more of a solid sausage in texture than the soyrizo so you'll have to go out of your way to crumble it (whereas the soyrizo is just crumbles in a throw-away plastic casing).

don't take my life away, don't take my life away.

Oh, joyous news. Thanks, Saxy. I can give this recipe a try, with the cornbread recipe I found, as well.

I second this delicious suggestion. It's soy-free wheat meat!
Field Roast grain sausages are the only ones I buy, especially the Mexican chipotle. The Apple Sage flavor is also good.

Ok, now for the good news for the OP and everyone else who contributed. I made this for our Fat Tuesday dinner, and it was a hit, even though my mother said, "I hope it's nothing vegetarian, since we won't eat it." Of course, this puts me in a dilemma. Do I tell them it was vegan, or do I just smile and say, "Thank you for enjoying dinner."?

Trader Joe's come be with me. I need you.
