Pableaux Johnson’s Red Beans & Rice
Although this classic Louisiana supper takes a little planning — the dried beans must be soaked for several hours or overnight, and then cooked for about 2 hours — there is no more satisfying way to feed a hungry crowd. As far as red beans go, there is no other choice but Camellia: a trusted, family-owned New Orleans company that’s been offering the highest-quality beans since 1923. The company was founded to sell only the highest quality legumes; they’re non-GMO, gluten-free, and meet the “Hayward Standard” (the name of the family name of the growers) which exceeds the top USDA requirements. Despite the cooking time, the richly flavored dish is surprisingly simple to make.
