White beans and nutritional yeast give this polenta a creamy and cheesy taste, without the dairy. Add some roasted broccoli and a drizzle of chili oil, and you’ve got an easy, filling meat-free dinner!
Skillet Green Beans
I love green beans. They're easy to grow, but even if you don't grow them, they're readily available and reasonable, and you can even buy them in the middle of winter these days. It's one of the few vegetables The Cajun will eat, so we eat them in one form or another pretty often.
As to cooking them, let's face the truth here. If you are from the south, you, probably, like me, aren't super fond of crispy green beans, unless, of course they are battered and fried. You, like me, likely rather love the slow-stewed green beans that cook down forever.
Instant Pot Ham Bone Red Beans and Rice
The Monday tradition of red beans lives on here in the Deep South, even if they’re made on Sunday, which, when they're made from dried beans, more often they are!
Because time is precious these days, I have four different ways I make them up here on the blog currently, depending on the time factor I have on my hands. From a quick skillet version like you get with those convenience boxes (but without the added chemicals and preservatives), to a shortcut version that you'll never believe started with canned beans, plus one for the slow cooker and of course, old school, slow-stewed from dried beans (still my number one favorite)… I've got you covered. Now I give you an instant pot pressure cooker version to add to the list that's as good as any!
