This classic Louisiana Creole dish is usually made on Mondays using beans and vegetables leftover from Sunday night’s dinner. Back when Monday was washday, women would leave it to simmer on the stove while tending to the washing.

Following in this tradition, chef Chris Lusk still serves his creamy red beans and rice every Monday at Café Adelaide — it’s a customer favorite.
