    CJane's Note:

    Give it a shot! One of our very favorite household staples for years. Great flavors come together to become more than the sum of it's parts! I'd never tried black eyed peas before eating this. Their earthy flavor is perfect when combined with these other ingredients. An easy to throw together, casual weeknight meal that needs no other accompaniment.

      This may seem like a slightly odd combination of flavors (it seemed odd to me before I tried it), but it was really good!! The combination of coconut rice and avocado salsa was really tasty, and all of the textures together were so delicious. I used the optional lime, and I don't think I'd ever leave it out...it added something extra to the flavor. I am pretty sure I never would have thought of this combo on my own, so thank you so much for posting it! I'll be making it again soon.

      Excellent blending of different textures and tastes. I didn't have any tomatoes so I used some chopped turnip instead. It was great! I also made the beans from scratch, didn;t used canned ones.
