    Zatarain's Red Beans & Rice copycat

    My 9 year old carbohydrate queen LOVES the Zatarains Red Beans and Rice mix. I've perused the recipes here on 'Zaar and can't for the life of me (I'm a Northern Calif. girl) figure out which one would come closest.

    Can anybody who is familiar with the boxed version steer me towards the recipe you think might be closest?

    I would win Mommy of the year if I could recreate it at home (don't buy it often since it is so $$$).

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the recipe. Do you have any idea if it is close to the Zatarian's boxed version?

    It's been years since I made Zararain's RB&R but I remember the rehydrated beans being an odd texture and generally very salty. OK, but not great. I stopped using the box and did without until I found this recipe.


    Treebeard's Red Beans (And Rice) is my favorite recipe and my kids like it too.
    I make this with canned beans (see my review) and it is VERY tasty. I think I'll make it tonight. Thanks for the idea!

    Thanks! I'll try it. Yeah...I'm not crazy about the boxed one either, but DD loves it and trying to get her to eat anything other than carbs can be a challenge!

    The Cook's Illustrated recipe tastes much better. Like the difference between instant and home made mashed potatoes.

    The thing is, the boxed mix does not include any meat, so by making the Cooks Illustrated version, you've already created something completely different.

    I subscribe to the Cook's Illustrated website. I posted it here because I thought someone would appreciate it. I guess I was wrong.

    Why? I'm sure people will appreciate the recipe. It just isn't what the OP asked for.

    Did you delete it?
    Most chefs appreciate different recipe ideas even if it isn't exactly what they asked for. It might be even better icon_wink.gif

    That is why I suggested what I did. It's T&T and my family really loves it.
