Healthy Red Beans and Rice

This is my creation. And I will admit I am pretty proud. I think it's pretty darn good, for a beans and rice dish!! ;)

Cook 1/2 chopped onion, 3 chopped celery stalks, 4 chopped carrots and 1 chopped red pepper in 2 Tbsp's coconut (refined) oil until tender. Add one can organic red beans and one lb ground organic free range turkey, cook thoroughly (You could do 2 cans beans and no meat if you prefer). Season to your liking with (depending on how spicy you want it):

sea salt


garlic salt




cayenne pepper

and chili powder

Serve over brown rice. You could cook fresh garlic in this dish too.


  1. I made this! yummy, good job Day. I just changed it a little. I didn't use carrots (don't like them!) and I didn't have any celery so it was a little more boring. But I just added extra pepper because I loooove peppers. Also, not sure how much seasoning you used, but I used a ton! (I enjoy very flavorful food! :) Finally, Nate decided to turn this meal into a burrito kind of meal and put the rice and meat all in a soft taco said that was also quite tasty.

    Anyway, yum!

  2. oh good! yes I do use A LOT of seasonings too!
