This is another theme off of my Whiskey Onion Dinner Rolls but the added fresh tarragon gives it a distinctly unique scent and flavor. If you like fresh herbs in your bread you may like this version better.

I use a bread maker to mix and rise the ingredients and then bake in the oven. If you don't have a bread maker you can still make this recipe but it will just take a little more elbow grease.

1/2 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Whiskey or Scotch
1 Egg
3 1/4 Cups bread flour
1/4 Cup sugar
3 Tsp bread yeast
5 Tbsp no salt butter
1/4 Yellow onion finally slivered or diced
1/4 Cup Fresh Tarragon rinsed and chopped
1/2 Tsp Black pepper
1 Tsp Celery seed

Low Sodium Dirty Rice

I prepared this to eat during the Super Bowl in support of the New Orleans Saints. I'm not primarily a Saints fan but I had to pick a team so I went with the Crescent City because I'm a big fan of Purple Voodoos and above ground gravesights. Now that I chose to support my fellow southerners in the Crescent City I needed an appropriate meal.

One component of the perfect N'Awlins meal is dirty rice but any pre-packed option will easily have 700+ mg of sodium per serving. Way too high so I decided to go it on my own. I used brown rice for this version but I'm sure white rice would work just as well.

Also, be sure to check the ingredient labels for your canned and bottled items. I selected low sodium kidney beans and no salt added tomatoes keeping the overall salt count very low. Additional options would be to use dried kidney beans pre-soaked for 4 - 6 hours and 2 medium fresh tomatoes. In my case, the canned options were low enough to make this a very easy low sodium dirty rice dish to prepare.

1 Cup Brown Rice
2 Cups Water
1 16oz Can Dark Red Kidney Beans
1 16 Oz Can Crushed Whole Tomatoes
1 Medium Yellow Onion
2 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
1 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Tsp Celery Seed
Several Splashes Tobasco Sauce
Several Splashes Worcestershire Sauce

Use your crock pot to keep this one simple. Prep work for this chili was no more than 10 minutes with no actual cooking required after that (you just have to have some willpower to wait until it is done because it will start to smell quite yummy in no time!)

Be sure to check the ingredient labels for your canned and bottled items. I selected low sodium kidney beans and no salt added stewed tomatoes keeping the overall salt count very low. Additional options would be to use dried kidney beans pre-soaked for 4 - 6 hours and 2 medium fresh tomatoes.

1 Lb Ground Beef
1 16oz Can Dark Red Kidney Beans
1 16 Oz Can Stewed Tomatoes
1 Bottle Newcastle Brown Ale
1 Medium Yellow Onion
4 Large Garlic Cloves
1 4oz Can Tomato Paste
2 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
1 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Tsp Celery Seed
Several Splashes Tobasco Sauce
Several Splashes Worcestershire Sauce
