FAIR FOOD RECIPE
New Orleans Red Beans and Rice
Take a 1 pound link of smoked sausage, cut up into small bites. A cup or more each of chopped celery, onion and green peppers, plus some chopped garlic, as much as you like, and fry them gently in olive oil until they are soft. Add the cut-up sausage, three regular-size cans of kidney beans (liquid and all), and a couple of cups of water, plus a teaspoon or so of thyme, a good splash of hot sauce. Bring to a boil, and either keep at a low simmer for a couple of hours or pop into a 350′ oven for two or three hours – if you simmer on the stovetop you’ll have to stir right down to the bottom every 10 minutes or so to keep it from burning onto the pot, and you’ll have to add water now and then. The idea is that the flavors will blend and the beans will eventually thicken the mixture to a creamy but loose consistency. If they don’t thicken to suit you, puree another can of kidney beans in a food processor and add that to the mix, and serve hot over plenty of rice.
