Red Beans & Rice Didn’t Miss Her…

“Red beans and rice didn’t miss her!” Hehe, remember that song?   I had gotten some turkey kielbasa for a real good price and had kidney beans on hand, so I looked at a few different recipes for kielbasa and beans and came up with this:

Turkey Kielbasa & Kidney Beans over Brown Rice

Ingredients (serves about 3 or 4):

  • Olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 package turkey kielbasa, sliced
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 3/4 tsp. ground red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • brown rice, cooked


  1. Heat oil in a skillet.  Add onions and cook until softened.  Add kielbasa and cook until browned.
  2. Lower heat and add beans, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce.  Cook until heated throughout.  Then add spices.
  3. Serve over brown rice.

We had some salad with our meal to get some more veggies in.

Tomorrow is my last day in the classroom I’ve worked in for almost a year and half! 😦  It’s bittersweet because I am definitely going to miss my students, but I’m very excited to work with new students!  I am hoping the snow won’t dump on us too much tonight and tomorrow, because I don’t want school to get cancelled (and quite frankly we already have enough snow).  Ok…well off to find something to watch with my man (Grey’s Anatomy is a repeat…boo!)
