However, I can say that this dish is SO good! I made it for dinner last night used 3 cans drained kidney beans because I forgot to soak the dried ones with a side of kale - can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch. The only thing I changed from the recipe was to do 1. Thanks for sharing this great, easy recipe. March 13, Reply. Love the extra spices - that's definitely a Louisiana thing to do.
Great idea serving it with kale. March 22, Reply. Hi Emilie. I have congestive heart failure so I was looking for a Cajun beans and rice dish that I could make low sodium and did not have sausage. I thought that I could add the spices that turned meat into sausage, and thereby get that sausage taste, right into the mixture. But then I found your recipe. No sausage required!
Or ham hocks. I plan to make it this week. I have no problem with meat, and since there is so much that I cannot eat I do not voluntarily take food that I can actually eat out from my diet choices. My only extra idea regarding your recipe, because I like the one pot meal of these beans and rice, is I was thinking of adding some riced cauliflower into the mix with the beans while it cooks. I am thinking that the riced cauliflower would not be noticeable, taste wise or texture wise, yet it would raise the vitamin content of the meal to make it perhaps fuller rounded.
They sell riced cauliflower at the Trader Joe's where I live so it is super easy to pop it into the pot Anyway, thank you for your recipe! I have been looking at a bunch of recipes on this and your recipe wins! It sounds great and it will be the starting point of my own personal cooking adventure of Cajun Red beans and rice, my way! Now it is fun time! May 25, Reply. Hey Albert! I'm so happy you found this recipe. I'm sure you will too! It can be easily customized to fit your needs! I LOVE your riced cauliflower idea!
What a great way to add extra vegetables without even knowing. You could even stir in some spinach until it wilts - it shrinks down so much that you don't even notice it! Let me know when you try it. I'm excited to hear what you think! Ok I made the dish Ce Soir tonight and it came out very tasty. I added my riced cauliflower and also used some mushrooms egad that if I did not use would just sit and go bad in my fridge.
I never tasted real Cajun red beans and rice so I cannot give an opinion whether this tastes like something that you might find in New Orleans. But I can say that it tasted very nice and I am glad that there is more of it for me to enjoy various more times thought out this week. This seems like a very flexible and forgiving recipe which allows you to be a little creative and still come out with a bean and rice dish that tastes good. Thank you for posting this recipe Emilie. This is a keeper for me.
The only other bean dish that I make regularly from time to time is Chili. This bean dish tastes very different from chili and it is also very good. So yeah! Variety is the spice of life. I think that I might try to make this in the crook pot next time. I like dishes that I can set, up throw in, press a button and come back to an excellent meal done and waiting for me.
If I can plan my time out right. May 30, Reply. Thank you so much for your comment, Albert! I'm glad you enjoyed the recipe! You can adjust the recipe as you see fit. It's amazing how much you can do with beans and rice! May 31, Reply. If I were to use 3 cans of kidney beans instead of the kind listed, do you think I'll need to adjust the cooking time? Or is the long cooking time to develop flavor, not soften the beans? Looking forward to trying this. July 13, Reply.
The long cooking time allows the beans to fully cook through if you were cooking them from scratch. You will need less broth and less cooking time with canned beans! July 29, Reply. Thanks for this recipe! As a new vegan from Louisiana, I was excited to try this. Very tasty and as I was cooking it smelled like there was sausage cooking but alas, it was the herbs! Great flavor. Definitely going into the regular rotation! Isn't it crazy how magical the herbs can be?! I'm so happy you loved this. I lived in New Orleans for 9 years and worked for a Native woman who was a descendent of slaves and she taught me how to make this with meat.
I make it now without meat ,your recipe is pretty close,the only difference is that I don't blend the beans,rather I just let the beans cook down until they are like a thick liquid. Also I add vegan andouille sausages on top. I love it. August 2, Reply. That's good to hear! Vegan sausage sounds like SUCH a good idea!
August 6, Reply. I just made this for my family and it was a huge hit! Even my 5 year old told me it was the best thing I ever made. We are trying to eat more vegetarian meals and this one sure was a great start. August 17, Reply. Yayyyy this makes me so happy! I hope you look around here and find more meals to cook for your family!
I made this in my Instant Pot yesterday and just wanted to let you know it turned out perfect and delicious! I didn't even have to do the saute step.
I just threw everything except the rice in the Instant Pot and let it go. I used your ingredient quantities plus. Because I did not soak my beans first and plus it was a VERY old bag of beans, it ended up taking an hour at high pressure and at the halfway mark I added a little more water.
See a Problem?
I knew it would take longer, so I diced the veggies in a very large dice so they didn't melt away to nothing. It is so, so yummy. September 4, Reply. SO happy this worked for you, Vickie! I always hear good things about the Instant Pot. Glad you enjoyed this recipe! September 5, Reply. I made this recipe this morning for fellowship hour after church. I googled "rice and beans vegetables for a crowd" and this was one of the recipes. I just tripled it, cooked in an 8qt stock pot, FYI to others who might want to try it large.
Someone else made a delicious spinach salad and another fruit salad with blue cheese and toasted walnuts People LOVED it!!! I had to put a cup away for myself for lunch tomorrow. I don't cook much an am trying to get into it to eat healthier. Thanks so much for this recipe. October 29, Reply. Thank you SO much for your comment, Sharon! It makes me so happy to hear you're trying to bring more nutritious food for your church group. I'm glad everyone loved it - it's definitely a crowd-pleaser! Let me know if you try any other recipes.
November 2, Reply. Wanting to make this tomorrow.. January 31, Reply. Just made it. Very tasty. The liquid smoke makes it feel like there is sausage inside. Will definitely be making this again and again. September 30, Reply. SO happy you like this recipe! Definitely a crowd-pleaser. So I've got my bean soaking, but I'm not sure I have the right ones Which I bought.
I've been soaking for a couple of hours - my lord, they love the water! My concern is that I have the wrong beans for this recipe.

They're nowhere near the blood-hued, solid beans I'm used to as a kidney bean. Instead, they're a luscious looking longer bean, almost elongated cashew in shape, with skins that are in some cases coming off, to reveal pale skin underneath. The broken ones even seem to have the "look" of a cashew nut, with the higher ridged sides tapering to a darker core. Do you think they'll still be ok? Or should I cut my losses, ditch this lot, and look for the dark red kidney beans?

October 12, Reply. Hey David, how did this turn out? I've never cooked light red kidney beans so I can't give any advice with that. The darker kidney beans are definitely the ones to look for, but I don't see why the light ones wouldn't work either! The light red kidney beans were a disaster.
They sucked up so much moisture, constantly, and remarkably turned a weird combination of mushy and grainy. Will hunt down the proper dark red kidney beans and try again! November 3, Reply. So weird! Let me know once you've tried with the dark red beans.
Eat meat? No thank you. Not this week
This recipe has been a hit with everyone so I know you'll have luck with them. November 25, Reply. Baaaaaybeehhh, this recipe was the bomb dot com! I celebrated my one year veganniversary with this heavenly meal : I give it 5 stars. Louisiana born and raised. November 16, Reply. These are delicious. I made them last night and had to dissuade myself from eating the whole pot. Thanks so much for this recipe! December 1, Reply. December 5, Reply. I made these tonight for dinner and they were wonderful. January 10, Reply. So happy to hear that, Sheri!
Thank you for your kind comment. January 16, Reply. January 15, Reply. So I am a college student and i dont really have access to a microwave, but i took this for lunch and it was still mighty tasty even at room temperature. So thank you again. April 15, Reply. We made this recipe for 3 people and had plenty of leftovers for the better part of a week. I'm personally not a vegan or even a vegetarian but I do like to incorporate different styles and also only meat occasionally.
I have to rate this recipe highly because it not only held its own as the star of the meal who's going to put this one the side? We used brown rice in almost an even mix of red beans and rice and found that the rice eagerly ate up the spices. I added hot sauce to my taste and everyone else was perfectly happy with the depth of the spice levels in their respective portions. Oh, and by the way, I used canned red beans and found that 3 cans go perfectly with 2 cups of uncooked brown rice.
Thank you so much for sharing this recipe and I will surely be back to try more of your eats! January 19, Reply. Thanks for sharing what worked for you and for leaving such a nice comment. Hope you make many more batches of this! I'm Cajun too, but I gave up all my favorite dishes when I went vegan four months ago. Thank you so much for this recipe! I've made it three times and I love it. You have inspired me to try converting some more favorites!
January 27, Reply. I will definitely be sharing more veganized Cajun recipes here. I have to say, I was a bit skeptical when I read this recipe. However, a good friend is having a birthday party and it is New Orleans themed, and I took up the challenge of making vegan red beans and rice for one of the guests.
While I am not about to stop eating my andouille, this is a much healthier version that taste absolutely delicious.

I did not have any liquid smoke, but I did have smoked paprika, so I used that instead. February 7, Reply. Happy you gave it a shot, Rebecca! I hope all of your friends enjoyed it too. February 15, Reply. Hey Emilie! How much veggie stock would you recommend if you're using canned beans instead of dry beans?
I work so much that I don't have time to cook them dry, sadly! Can't wait to try this recipe!! February 13, Reply. You should be able to use cans of beans! Hi Emily, I am making this dish as I type this. I have been cooking the beans for about 1 hr 15 min, but they are still way too hard. I did soak them overnight and followed all recipe instructions. Do I just need to keep cooking them? How did this turn out?
If you soaked them overnight and cooked them for that long, they should be edible. You definitely don't want undercooked beans that can be dangerous. Maybe it was just a bad batch of beans? After asking my mom who makes this on the regular, I think it was the light red kidney beans. She said she always uses dark. Maybe you could specify in the ingredients dark red? It may be in the reading somewhere, but I just scrolled down to the ingredients. February 26, Reply. April 14, Reply. The flavor is good but it turned into more of a soup when we made a triple batch.
We gave up trying to cook it down after a few hours and just stuck stuck with the soup. Sorry that it turned out like soup! Did you use dried beans or canned beans? This is very good. The liquid smoke is a must and makes the meal. At first, the flavors were not coming together for me I kept following the instructions and the final result was amazing.
I am a new vegan, meaning, I still really miss meat but I don't miss the sausage in this dish. This is a keeper. February 17, Reply. The liquid smoke definitely makes the dish! I would recommend Field Roast's meatless sausage - it is SO amazing. I also love it in jambalaya! February 22, Reply. These beans were delicious! I was worried they would be ho-hum without sausage, but that wasn't the case. A very good vegan version. Thank you for posting your recipe. I'm excited to make it for my family this week. I entered in the ingredients into my fitness pal to see the nutritional score.
The nutritional information includes the rice at 8 servings and 2 tsp of olive oil for the saute. I thought others might be interested so I am sharing my results. I made this for a church supper last night--I tripled the recipe and had enough for 15 people with a little left over. People loved it and went back for seconds and thirds. I was so happy! Not hard at all, even for an inexperienced cook like me, perfect for a Lenten supper, really delicious. Thank you so much! March 3, Reply. Holy heck this dish is amazing.
Just made it and it made the house smell so good the entire time lol. I would probably pick a low sodium broth next time because it's a tad salty for my taste, but it's still so delicious. Thank you for making a vegan version as this will be a staple in our household from now on. March 6, Reply.
