This is even better when frozen and reheated. Gives the flavors time to develop.


1 pound dried red kidney beans
1/2 cup dried parsley
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp garlic
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp salt
1-2 tsp Cajun seasoning
1 Tbsp sugar
1 chopped onion
1 chopped bell pepper
2-3 stalks celery, chopped

Soak beans in water overnight. Drain and rinse. Place beans in crock pot with all ingredients. Stir and cover with water. Cook on Low all day (~8-10 hours). When you get home, stir the beans often, getting them nice and creamy and mushing them up a little bit. On your stovetop, saute some chopped sausage until nicely browned. Add sausage to beans (I usually pour in the sausage grease, too), stir and serve over rice. This freezes great.
If you want, add a can of chicken broth and/or a can of beer in lieu of some of the water. This adds a nice flavor.
