From Bittman's, "The Best Recipes in the World." If you like any of his recipes, you may as well go ahead and buy the book. It's fantastic, both as a reference and for its recipes.
- Combine coconut milk, bay leaf (or garlic) if you're using it, and rice. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add some salt, lower heat to low and cover. Cook for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to ensure it doesn't scorch.
- Uncover. Cook, stirring over low heat, until rice is tender and mixture is creamy, about 15 minutes. At about the 10-minute mark, stir in beans. If liquid evaporates before rice is done, stir in water (about 1/2 cup at a time), and cook until done.
This was great! I was careful to check liquid levels based on other reviews, but everything was fine! I used different proportions than called for: half the rice and coconut milk but a whole can of black beans. Also, I added salt and a bit of hot pepper. made for ZWT9
My family loved this recipe...I did everything according to recipe except I used kidney beans. I also added All spice, cinnamon and a bit of sugar for sweetness.
Mmmmm, this was very good! I loved the creaminess of the rice and the combo of flavors going on. I used black beans. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT9, for the Gourmet Goddesses.
