Red Beans and Rice (Crock Pot Recipes), originally uploaded by Lakenvelder.

You would usually use a ham bone for this recipe but I made it without meat in this recipe.

1 pound small dried red beans, soaked overnight and drained
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic,minced
salt and pepper
6 cups hot cooked rice
1 cup chopped green onions (optional)
1 ham bone cracked (optional)

Place beans in crock pot and add remaining ingredients, except rice and green onions. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours. If you use the ham remove meat from the bone and return the meat to the pot. Mix and serve with rice and onions on top.
