Treebeards Red Beans and Rice-From their cookbook
We have made this multiple times. It is very very good.
Treebeard's Red Beans
1 lb dried red kidney beans
2 quarts water
2 medium onions, chopped ( I used about 1/2-3/4 container of chopped onion from produce dept)
1/2 large bell pepper, chopped ( I used about 1/2 container of chopped bell pepper from produce dept)
2 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp ground thyme
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/4 tsp garlic powder ( I used a little less than 1/2 tsp minced garlic)
3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 bay leaves
1 lb smoked sausage, cut in 1/2 inch slices
Wash and drain red beans. In a 4 quart pan, add 2 quarts cold water & red beans. Soak overnight. Do not drain water.
Or, in a 4 quart pan, add 2 quarts cold water and red beans. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat & simmer 2 minutes. Remove from heat & let stand for 1 hour before continuing. Do not drain water.
Add onion & bell pepper to red beans and bring to a boil. (Not in original directions but I added 3-4 additional cups of water at this point as I could see more liquid was required.) Stir in seasonings, cover, reduce heat & simmer 1 1/2 hours or until red beans are almost tender. Add sausage and simmer an additional 30 minutes or until beans are tender. Remove bay leaves before serving.
If you like beans thickened, remove the cover during the last 30 minutes of cooking. Or, after beans have cooked, remove 1/2 cup beans, mash, return to pot and mix.
