 Cajun-Style Red Beans & Brown Rice
 Serves 9 (it really does!)
 
 1 pound dried pinto beans
 2 cup chopped yellow onion
 1 cup chopped green onions
 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
 1/4 teaspoon red cayenne pepper
 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/4 teaspoon oregano
 1/4 teasppon garlic powder
 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
 3 dashes Tabasco sauce
 6 ounce can of tomato paste
 1/4 teaspoon thyme
 1 teaspoon celery flakes
 6 cups cooked brown rice
 
 Wash beans and then soak for 12 hours.  (I never soak beans and never have any 
 gas unless I eat them with milk.)
 
 Drain water.  Fill a large pot with beans; add water to 1/2 inch above
 beans level.  Add remaining ingredients except rice; cook over low heat
 2 to 2 1/2 hours, covered.  Serve over cooked brown rice.
