Red Beans & Rice - My Recipe

This is my personal recipe of red beans and rice. I've seen it made many many times in the kitchens of the French Quarter and in the homes of friends. This is how I like to make them. Creamy, slow cooked and full of flavor. Cooking time does not include the over night soaking of the beans. Red Beans have 7 grams of fiber per serving and are very good for you. Beans and rice together are a complete protein. (Vegan directions are included)
