A Note From Page:
This week I’ve decided not to do anything that resembles a sandwich. Instead, I’ve chosen one of my favorite recipes for Red Beans & Rice.
Now, I know that I will be hearing from some purists that this isn’t anything like what you might find at Mothers, or any of my favorite dining establishments in New Orleans. To them I would say that this recipe is not trying to replicate something, or transport you somewhere else; It is more of an interpretation. Anyway, I like it, and I hope you do too.
We recommend you serve it with a salad. And I always put plenty of hot sauce on it. Enjoy!
