Cajun Meatless Red Beans and Brown Rice

"A meatless, filling dish cooked in a pressure cooker. Quick, healthy, and makes enough for leftovers. I prepare the rice separately in a rice cooker before I start cooking the beans. That way the rice is cooked and warm when the beans are ready."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I'm a Louisiana native and part Cajun, so even though it's not too spicy for me it might be too spicy for you! If you're not sure, I'd reduce the cayenne pepper to 1/8 teaspoon. You can always add more later.
  • Substitute 1/2 teaspoon dried basil for the fresh basil if preferred.
