Down Home Red Beans and Rice (Gluten-Free)

I've been on a bit of a southern food kick lately, making things like fried catfish, blackened snapper, and the like. This recipe for red beans and rice makes for a nice meal on its own, or in combination with any of your southern favorites. It goes great with your favorite gluten-free cornbread.

  • 6 cups GF chicken stock
  • 4 cups water
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 4 cups cooked white rice
  • 1 pound dried red beans, rinsed and sorted
  • 1 pound smoked ham hocks
  • ½ pound smoked sausage, split lengthwise and cut in 1-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup chopped ham
  • 3 tablespoons bacon grease
  • 1½ cups chopped yellow onions
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • ¾ cup chopped red bell peppers
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
  • 3 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 3 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion as garnish, as desired
  • Pinch ground cayenne pepper

Directions:
Place the beans in a large bowl or pot and cover with water by 2 inches. Let soak for 8 hours or overnight. Drain and set aside.

In a large pot, heat the bacon grease over medium-high heat.

Add the ham, and stir as it cooks for 1 minute or so.

Add the onions, celery and bell peppers.

Season with the salt, pepper, and cayenne.

Add wine and cook, stirring for about 5 minutes, or until the vegetables get soft.

Add the bay leaves, parsley, thyme, sausage, and ham hocks,

Stir and cook until sausage and ham hocks are brown, about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute.

Add the beans and stock or water, stir well, and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for a couple of hours, or until the beans become tender and start to thicken.

Add water as needed to keep the beans from getting too thick.

Use a slotted spoon or strainer to remove about ¼ of the beans from the pot and place into a bowl.

Use a potato masher or a large spoon to mash the beans in the bowl.

Return mashed beans to pot, and continue to cook until the beans are tender and creamy, 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove the pot from the heat. Take out and discard the bay leaves.

Serve in spoonfuls over white rice and garnish with green onions.

That sounds fabulous. We make beans and rice. Sometimes with black beans and sometimes with red beans. We always use canned beans to simplify the process. And red pepper flakes instead of cayenne, more than a tablespoon full.

I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days.

They are gluten-free. Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it? For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before? Maybe stomach virus?

Has anyone had an reaction to potatoes? Just made couple bake potatoes 2hrs ago and now I feel awful...just wondering thought potatoes were gluten free?????

I recently covered some pizzas when adding some grain free options to the gluten alternative list....I actually found a company that makes gluten-free hot pockets also sorta made me laugh. There are some unique ones out there now days even found one that made low carb crust out of chicken breast and cheese. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/

these sound like celiac reactions yes ... basically avoid anything that causes the reaction always and find your self a great natural practitioner and rebuild your body .. Rest vitamins digestive enzymes and very strict diet Good Luck
