    Bev's Note:

    This is the recipe Chef Roberto Martin developed for Ellen Degeneres. Ellen being a native of New Orleans has always loved Red Beans and Rice. When she became a vegan it was quite an accomplishment for Roberto to develop this outstanding vegan alternative for the traditional recipe. He suggests using organic beans, broth made from "Better Than Bouillon" Vegetable Base and "Field Roast" Apple, and "Field Roast" Italian Sausage. I have made this recipe several times now and it is always outstanding. You will not miss the meat.....or the fat. Delicious, made healthy? You bet!
