Chef Folse: Cajun Red Bean and Sausage Soup

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

CAJUN RED BEAN AND SAUSAGE SOUP

Prep Time: 2½ Hours

Yields: 4 Servings

Comment:

Red beans and rice is Louisiana's Monday dish. Here, the traditional recipe has been made into a hearty soup that can be used as a starter or an entrée.

Ingredients:

2 cups dried red kidney beans

¼ pound smoked sausage, sliced

¼ cup diced tasso (optional)

9 cups chicken broth

½ cup diced onions

¼ cup diced celery

¼ cup diced bell pepper

¼ cup sliced green onions

2 tbsps chopped parsley

2 tbsps minced garlic

1 bay leaf

2 tsps cider vinegar

¼ tsp thyme

¼ tsp chili powder

¼ tsp cracked black pepper

Method:

Place all ingredients in a 1-gallon, heavy-bottomed stockpot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook 2 hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Cook until beans are very tender. Remove about ½ cup of beans from pot and purée in a food processor with 2 cups of liquid. (Or, you may mash the beans in the pot with the back of a cooking spoon.) Return puréed beans to soup to create a thicker consistency. NOTE: White or black beans can be substituted for red beans for an easy variation to this dish.

    Brandon Coleman lost two fumbles inside the Jets 30-yard line. Drew Brees threw an interception inside the Saints own 20. The Black and Gold lost offensive guard Larry Warford with a concussion right before half. All off these negatives, and the Saints still beat the Jets, 24-19. The Jets came into the contest with a 5-8 record, and played without their starting quarterback. A weakened New York squad no doubt helped out with the final outcome.  Brees went 25-of-35 passing for 2...
