"Oh yeah, this is it!" - are the words my husband declared when he tried this recipe for red beans and rice. He was craving New Orleans-style red beans and rice and I had never made it before- so this is the recipe I searched for and tried and it was delicious!! The kids thought it was great too. I only made a few small changes to Emeril's, like adding more sausage than the recipe called for and letting a smoked ham hock cook with the beans for the first two hours..other than that everything is the same. This is not a quick meal, but great for a lazy day at home.
This recipe is a big hit with my family. Even the kids love it! I got it out of "The Low Blood Sugar Cookbook", so it's lo carb and great for diabetics. It's so easy to throw together and dinner is served in no time.I serve it as a main dish with a salad and garlic bread. Hope you enjoy it.
I make this at least once a week when our garden is exploding with zucchini and yellow squash. It only takes about 10 minutes and the parmesean cheese makes it wonderful. You can't go wrong with this simple recipe!
pre prep for any meat or veggie recipe
make ahead batches to freeze
I have stated making batches of green stuff for over 20 years to save time due to working over 40 hours a week
make large batches for one time easy clean up
saves lots of time over months and months of cooking
I have been making this for years and don't remember exactly where it came from. I love cabbage and bacon so using the two together is just heavenly. I like the cabbage a little closer to crisp than to fully cooked but you can adjust it to your liking.
Easy and economical. Ideal for rinsing produce when you cannot get or afford to buy Organic. Removes a lot of residue like chemicals, pesticides and other matter quickly and easily. I saw this on Oprah and had to share! NOTE: Make sure to mix this in a DEEP pitcher. The baking soda and vinegar will react and foam everywhere if you do not. (just ask any elementary school kid who has ever made a volcano for science class)
