Sharing my story with my recipe
I currently live in West Texas. Anyway, being from Louisiana I learned how to cook that southern New Orleans Style Red Beans & Rice. As I have shared in a previous post, at one point in my life, online casino no deposit bonus uk. Well, before I became a vegan, I was also a vegetarian! (Ha-ha-ha) I know, I know…what next huh?
A plan in the making
I had given up meat, but as a vegetarian I ate fish and had dairy etc. So, I no longer was enjoying that New Orleans Style Red Beans & Rice with the smoked sausage and varies spices. I had found an alternative that was just as tasty; Crock Pot Red Beans! Yeah, I know….it doesn’t sound as exciting as the red beans with smoked sausage, but trust me on this one, I did not miss it and you won’t miss it either.
Don’t get me wrong, I like my smoked turkey sausage. As I have shared, I am no longer a vegan or vegetarian, but for those who just might want a little break from meat or just don’t want to eat meat, then this recipe is indeed for you! These Crock Pot Red Beans are full of flavor and the smell of it COOKING…. please tell me about it once you try. I’m serious, I want to know. Send me a picture, leave me your comments; I’ll be reading! Make it a great one.
