      I made this last night, and found it to be filling. I think there should be a little bit more rum, as I barely tasted any.

      Wow, this was fantastic! I love the idea of serving something over beans, instead of mixing them in as I normally would do. This is easy to make and I love the flavours, especially the thyme. I didn't have a leek or cilantro on hand, so had to skip them, but the dish was still great. Although I didn't feel like anything was missing, I think some roughly chopped garlic would have been a nice addition. I also think I'd add the onions to the spices first and let them cook fry with the spices for a while before continuing. Wonderful, I know I'll make this again!! Made during ZWT7.
