Louisiana Red Beans With Rice Recipe

Updated on March 28, 2015

Red Beans Served Over White Rice


Louisiana Red Beans And Rice

In New Orleans it is a Monday luncheon favorite. Not only in restaurants but at home as well , usually made from a leftover ham bone or ham shank. Not only is it easy to prepare it is also delicious. It is a staple throughout the south. Louisiana Red Beans And Rice can be served as a side dish or as a main dish. I usually have them as a main dish, however , with that said I absolutely love them as a side dish when I make Louisiana Spiced Fried Chicken.

Every time we have a ham, I save the bone to use in this recipe. I cut the bone away from the ham, wrapping it well with plastic wrap. I then place the wrapped bone in a freezer bag and freeze until ready to use.

Louisiana Red Beans are delicious poured over hot white rice. I make my rice in a automatic rice maker, but it will be just as good in what ever manner you usually use to make white rice.

Red bean are high in starch, protein and dietary fiber and is an excellent source of iron, potassium, selenium, molybdenum, thiamine, vitamin B6, and folic acid.
