  1. Pick over kidney beans, place into a large bowl, and pour in enough water to cover by several inches. Soak kidney beans overnight.
  2. Drain kidney beans, transfer to a large soup pot, and cover with 3 quarts fresh water.
  3. Stir in green bell pepper, onion, celery, salt, black pepper, Creole seasoning, and garlic.
  4. Cover the pot, place over medium heat, and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to low and simmer until beans are tender, about 4 hours.
  6. Mix smoked sausage into the beans; cook an additional 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. About 30 minutes before serving time, place 2 cups water and margarine into a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  8. Stir in rice, return to a boil, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover the pan and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to stand covered for 5 minutes.
  9. Serve red beans over cooked rice.
