New Orleans Beans from Pam
Believe it or not, we eat beans almost every day. Each week
it's a new pot of some kind or other. Here's a new taste we really enjoyed this week out of a Whole Foods booklet.
(small red beans are a version of the kidney bean. In New Orleans, served over rice on Mondays to rebalance those who enjoyed the weekend too much.)
Combine 4 cups cooked beans with:
4 T. soy sauce or Bragss Liquid Aminos
2 tsp. basil
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. oregano
dash of cayenne (optional)
2 minced garlic cloves
Simmer 10 mins.
Add 4 chopped tomatoes (or canned)
2 T. olive oil
Simmer another min and serve with cooked brown rice. (we had whole wheat ciabatta instead) YUM!
