Louisiana Style Red Beans and Rice (Fasting)

1 lb small red beans
1 qt vegetable broth or bullion
3 stalks celery small dice
1 lg green pepper small dice
1 large onion small dice
6 cloves garlic minced
1 bunch parsley chopped
1 bunch green onions chopped
4 TBS dried thyme leaves
2 tsp liquid smoke
1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne peppe
1/4 to 1/2 tsp white pepper
1/4 to 1/2 tsp black pepper
6 to 8 shakes or more to taste Tabasco sauce
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
6 to 8 shakes or more to taste Frank's red hot sauce
2 3inch pieces of lemon zest stuck with 3 cloves in each zest

Put red beans, vege broth and veges in a crock pot. Add everything else reserving the parsley and green onions. Cook on high for 6 to 8 hours. For the last hour or so I remove the lid so that the sauce will thicken up. Adjust seasonings about 1/2 hour before ready to serve. Right before serving remove the lemon zest and stir in the parsley and green onions. Serve with steamed rice.
