Cajun Red Beans & Rice Patties Recipe With Creamy Creole Mustard Sauce

Creamy red beans, rice, vegetables and Cajun seasonings combine to create a flavor-packed, hearty vegetarian meal. This easy red beans and rice patties recipe has a bold Creole mustard sauce that really makes the dish. The first bite will wow you.

The patties are a mixture of mashed kidney beans, bell pepper, onion, celery, Cajun seasoning, garlic, an egg and cooked white rice. The patties are formed then refrigerated for about 20 minutes to help them hold their shape while cooking. (If you have time, don't skip this step. It really helps when cooking the patties.) The flavorful creole mustard sauce is simply creole mustard, mayonnaise, minced green onion and fresh parsley. 

Serve this easy Cajun recipe with a salad and vegetable. I served mine with collard greens and corn on the cob. To reheat the leftovers, pop them under the broiler for a couple minutes.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup minced green bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced celery
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning (I used Tony Chachere's Original Cajun Seasoning)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup cooked white rice (I used one bag of Success Boil-in-Bag Jasmine Rice)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Creole Mustard Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons Creole mustard (I used Zatarain's Creole Mustard)
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (I used Hellman's Real Mayonnaise)
  • 2 tablespoons minced green onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced flat-leaf parsley

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine all the mustard sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside.
  2. Put the kidney beans into a mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher.
  3. Add the bell pepper, onion, celery, garlic, Cajun seasoning, egg and cooked rice. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
  4. Shape into four to six patties. If you have time, pop them into the refrigerator to chill about 20 minutes (this is optional).
  5. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Carefully add the patties and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Be careful when flipping the patties so they stay together.
  6. To serve, spoon a good amount of mustard sauce over the top and garnish with chopped green onions. Serve with Tabasco sauce.

This is making my mouth water. What a great idea, especially since we're trying to eat less meat. Thanks for the yum, Donna John !
Wow do these look good. 😋
The taste is good, but these completely fell apart during cooking. There must be something wrong with the recipe because I followed it exactly.
Donna John
I'm sorry to hear that! You do have to be very careful when flipping them, and make sure you got a good crust before you flip. I had one that kind of fell apart, but I squished it back together in the pan and it did OK. I used this recipe exactly, so not sure what happened with yours. But I'm glad you enjoyed the taste and thanks for letting us know your experience. tinaindenver
