Soaking the dry beans the night before is a good idea because beans contain phytic acid. This anti-nutrient robs the body of minerals such as copper, magnesium and iron and is hard on the digestive system. So, an overnight soak of filtered water and a pinch of baking soda does the trick!

I purchase my sausage from 1915 farms, but if you don’t have a local farm to purchase from, brands like Bilinski’s organic sausage or Applegate are good choices.

You can serve the red beans and rice, with soaked rice, or if you need to avoid grains right now, you can serve it with cauliflower rice, or just skip the rice all together.

I hope you enjoy this slow cooker recipe as much as I do!

Place the kidney beans and pinch of baking soda in a large bowl and cover with filtered water. Leave the beans on the counter at room temperature, overnight. The next day, drain the beans and pour them into the bowl of a slow cooker. Cover the beans with filtered water and stir in the tomatoes, garlic powder, sea salt and sausage. Put the lid on, set the crock pot to high, and cook for 8 hours, or until the beans are tender. Add more salt or garlic powder to taste. Serve alone or over soaked and cooked brown rice.
