Red Beans and Rice

William’s Red Beans and Rice

1 lb red kidney beans (Camellia brand)

1 large onion

2 tbsp dried parsley

1 tbsp season salt

2 (5inch) pieces of fresh celery

1 clove of fresh garlic

10-12 bay leaves

1 tbsp marjoram

1/4 cup green onions

1 lb tvp “meat”

4 cups brown rice

Camellia Red Beans

*Wash beans, put in pot of water with 2 inches of water over beans
*Add all (except: “meat”, green onion, rice.)
*Bring to boil, then lower temp to simmer
*Simmer 2 hours then add “meat” and 2 cups water
*Add season salt and simmer 1 hour.
*Add green onions and cook 1 hour (or until beans are soft)
*We use a rice steamer to cook our rice.  If you do not have one of these cook per instructions on bag.

This one is a little time consuming, but well worth the wait.  Serves 6-8.
Along with his recipe I also prepared cornbread.

*Mix Flax and Water in a cup and set aside for a few minutes.
*In Separate bowl, mix dry ingredients, then add agave and stir.
*Add soymilk, flax mixture, and oil.  Mix together until smooth.
