Red Beans and Rice Seasoning is a bit smoky with some mild heat and hints of celery and onion and is hand blended from onion, garlic, parsley, celery, cumin, cayenne, bay leaf and red pepper flakes.
Red beans and rice is a classic New Orleans dish, that for years was served mainly on Mondays (although nowadays it can be had any day of the week). A favorite food of famed New Orleans Jazz trumpeter Louis Armstrong, the musician was known to sign his letters with "Red Beans and Ricely Yours, Louis Armstrong".
Red beans and rice may be the quintessential dish of Louisiana Creole cuisine (this was not originally a Cajun dish). Typically made with red beans, vegetables (bell pepper, onion, and celery), spices and pork bones (often leftovers from Sunday dinner) slow cooked in a pot and served over rice. A great example of true Southern cooking at its core, and perfect for escaping the cold days of winter.
