Coconut Basmati Rice with Black Beans

This is an easy recipe which provides you with a complete meal. I used a light coconut milk and no added fat making it a very light and easily digestible dinner.

Servings: 4

2 cups water
1 cup brown basmati rice
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp salt
1 piece cinnamon stick
1/4 cup currants or raisins
1 can of black beans, rinsed

In a heavy saucepan with a tightly fitting lid, bring the water to a boil.

When the water boils, stir in the washed rice and all of the remaining ingredients except black beans.

Return to a boil. Stir, cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer. Just before the water is fully absorbed (about 20-25min) stir in the black beans. Cook about 5-10 min until the rice is fully cooked and all the water is absorbed.

Remove the cinnamon stick, stir to fluff the rice and serve.

This is a very light but satisfying meal.

  1. I love all your recipe ideas! I have been trying to cook with beans more ever since I read your protein ebook. I’ve been buying them dry, and its time consuming to re-hydrate them, are there any drawbacks to getting the beans in a can as you did in this recipe?

  2. We tried this recipe the other night, it was delicious and easy to make, recommend it to all!
