Mom's 20-Minute Red Beans and Rice
"A healthy and satisfying dinner can be on the table in just 20 minutes! My Mom’s recipe for Red Beans and Rice is a childhood favorite that has stood the test of time. Whether you prepare a vegetarian version or whip up the original with beef, it’s a simple meal that the whole family will love! This is one of those recipes that just totally reminds me of my childhood. My mom served Red Beans and Rice on a regular basis, and now I know why. It’s an easy, quick-prep dinner that comes together in less than 30 minutes (and it tastes like it took MUCH longer)! This Red Beans and Rice can be prepared ahead of time for those crazy days when you don’t want to do anything more than reheat a meal. It’s freezer-friendly, and I swear that it just gets better as it sits!"
NotesThis recipe can easily be made vegetarian by substituting an extra can of beans instead of the beef.
