Red Beans and RiceIt’s a tradition like no other in Southern Louisiana. It’s Monday. It’s red beans and rice. It’s what’s for dinner.
Red beans and rice became a staple Monday meal when Monday was washday. Since red beans and rice don’t require much attention (just a lot of time!), it became the ideal meal to sit simmering while the wash was getting done. While we don’t all spend Mondays doing laundry any longer, South Louisiana and New Orleans still loves that Monday bean routine.
Traditional pairings include smoked sausage, but tons of different foods go well with red beans and rice, whether it’s a pork chop, fried seafood, ham shanks, hot sausage, fried chicken/chicken livers. Top your meal off with some cornbread and greens, and you have a true New Orleans meal.
