Serving up a different kind of Red Beans

On this Meatless Monday, I am serving up another kind of dish from the usual edible one. It was just last week on Lundi Gras in New Orleans (as part of Mardi Gras celebrations) that the creative members of the Red Beans parade krewe showed their stuff.

I don’t know how long it has been ‘tradition’ to serve Red Beans on Monday. It makes sense, though, that the Red Beans krewe parades on Monday, Lundi Gras, the day before Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday).

I hope you enjoy the photos. So many creative and artistic ways shown here to use dried beans, peas and lentils. Of course, you can figure out for yourself that New Orlean’s own¬†Camellia¬†Brand is a sponsor.

Maybe next year come visit around this time and see the parade for yourself. It is even better in person!
