Ingredients
  

  • 2 15 oz can red beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2.3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup rice

Instructions
 

  • Place the red beans, onion, green pepper, celery, thyme, garlic, vegetable broth, bay leaf, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper in a slow cooker and cook on low for 4-5 hours.
  • Stir in the rice, pinch of salt and pepper, and increase heat to high and cook for 1-2 hours depending on the rice you use (see notes) .

Notes

Depending on the type of rice you use, it should cook in 1-2 hours on high. I used a sprouted blonde rice and it cooked in 40 minutes. Brown rice should take roughly 2 hours. If you decide that you don't want to add the rice into the slow cooker, reduce the liquid to 1 cup and cook rice on it's own.
