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.

Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parent...

It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge. Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chas...

I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed ce...

Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA al...

This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven? My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an...
