An easy, yet satisfying combination of red beans and rice has serious meal appeal when simmered with Cajun seasonings in a flavorful soup.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and bell pepper and saute until softened, 5 minutes. Add garlic and Cajun seasoning and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add broth and beans and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and season with salt. Simmer until broth is slightly thickened, about 20 minutes, skimming any foam that rises to top.

  • Stir in rice and cook, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Add scallions and cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat and season with additional Cajun seasoning, if desired.

Cook's Notes

"My light, brothy version is made even easier (and speedier) with canned beans and converted rice, so you don't have to wait all day for a delicious bowl."

Just made this and it is GREAT! Simple to make and super tasty. I used 5 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning in the soup while cooking. It smells great, looks great, tastes great -- and it's healthy too! It would be easy to multiply for a crowd. And, seems like something that would go well with cornbread. :)
