Creole Stewed Red Beans

Mardi Gras is on the horizon, but you don’t need that as an excuse to make this amazing Creole Red Bean recipe. Skip the sausage and use whichever type of rice you have on hand to make this delicious dish complete.

It was easy using the Instant Pot instead of cooking it on the stove. I simply added the beans, diced onion, garlic, celery, peppers, vegetable stock, and Healthy On You® House of the Rising Spice Creole Spice to the bowl, set it to Pressure Cook on high for 30 minutes and allowed it to depressurize for 30 minutes after it was finished. then added salt and pepper to taste.

The beans were tender and the recipe was ready in half the time it would normally take to make. See the full recipe below.
