These creamy, luscious red beans, paired with nutty brown rice, are as good as it gets.

Prep Time5 minsCook Time1 hr 40 minsTotal Time1 hr 45 mins

Ingredients
 1 lb Camellia's red kidney beans

 1 cup chopped yellow onion

Rinse and sort the beans, removing any stones, discolored or shriveled beans. To a large pot, add beans with water, and bring to a boil. Boil for 10 minutes. Add the onion, garlic, parsley, and celery, along with the Cajun seasoning. Reduce heat and cover the pot. Simmer, stirring occasionally for 1-1 1/2 hours, or until tender.
I don't add salt to my recipes but if you prefer, add 1/2 teaspoon salt along with the onion, etc. Serve with brown rice and thinly sliced scallions.

Brown Rice
I like to cook my brown rice "pasta style". Boil 5-6 quarts of water, add the rice (2 cups dry) and cook at medium high heat, not boiling, but higher than a simmer, until rice is tender. Depending on the type of brown rice, this can take from 30-40 minutes. Pour water and rice into a colander. Place drained rice back into the pot you cooked it in and allow it to steam, covered for 10 minutes. The brown rice will be fluffy and perfect.
