Recipe Ingredients for Cajun White Beans

16 oz Great Northern Beans
1 tablespoon canola oil
8 ounces Conecuh Smoked Sausage
1 serving (15 g) lower sodium bacon (2 slices), chopped (serving)
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 a bell pepper, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

Recipe Directions for Cajun White Beans

  1. Rinse and sort through the beans, add to a stockpot and cover with water plus about 1 inch. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and turn off burner. Let soak for 1 hour. Drain and return to stockpot.

  2. Heat canola in a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Quarter and slice sausage into small bite sized pieces, add to hot oil and cook until browned. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to the stockpot with the beans. To the drippings in the skillet, add the bacon and cook until rendered. Remove the bacon, set aside, and add the onion, bell pepper and celery to the skillet. Cook until just browned and beginning to caramelize. Add the garlic and cook another minute. Transfer veggies to the beans and sausage; add the cooked bacon. Deglaze the skillet with a bit of water and scrape up any browned bits. Add that to the bean pot.

  3. Cover everything with fresh water, plus about an inch and a half, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 1-1/2 hours, stirring occasionally, or until beans are tender and gravy is thickened. Add additional water if needed to thin. Stir in the parsley, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper to taste (leave out salt if you are watching your sodium) and simmer another 5 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve over hot rice and hot sauce (I love Crystal hot sauce).
