• 2 tbl vegetable oil
  • 2 large onions, sliced thin
  • 2 cups cooked red beans
  • 1/4 cup bean cooking liquid or water
  • 1 cup cooked white rice


Heat the oil in a heavy pot and saute onion until lightly golden.

Add the cooked beans and liquid, Stir gently and continuously over low heat for about 5 minutes; the beans should remain whole not mashed.

Add the cooked rice and continue to stir for about 10 minutes.

Taste and add a little salt if desired.

(To cook the red beans: Place 1 cup of dry red beans, 6 mashed garlic cloves and enough water to cover in a pressure cooker and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Do not add salt as it will toughen beans.)

(To cook the rice: Converted rice works best. It can be made in the rice cooker if you prefer, but watch the water rice ratio and cooking time; the rice needs to be firm, not sticky.)
