It was very good, though a little bland. I ate it served over sticky rice, and the rest of my family had added diced sauasage - red beans and rice style. Everyone tought it was a hit.
Excellent beans, especially considering that the recipe has no meat at all. I made this for ZWT5 French/Cajun, and I used 1/2 of a medium Vidalia onion instead of shallots, omitting the sage for personal taste; otherwise made exactly as directed. Great served with sliced, toasted baguette, Tabasco sauce and fresh Polish sausage. Thanks!!
