1 Pound Dry Kidney Beans

¼ Cup Three Farmers Original Camelina Oil

1 Large Onion, Chopped

1 Green Bell Pepper, Chopped

Directions:

  1. Rinse the red kidney beans and soak in a large bowl of water overnight
  2. In a saucepan, heat the Three Farmers Original Camelina Oil on medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, bell peppers and celery and sauté until soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. 
  3. Rinse the soaked beans and place in a large pot. Add the 6 cups of water, the cooked vegetables, the bay leaves and the seasonings and combine. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium low and allow to simmer for 2 ½ hours. 
  4. Stir in the sliced sausages and allow to simmer for another 45 minutes. 
  5. Meanwhile, place the long grain brown rice and 4 cups of water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and allow the rice to simmer with the lid on until all the water has been absorbed. 
  6. Serve the beans on top of the steamed rice.
