 Ingredients List

  • --------------------------------COCONUT MILK--------------------------------
  • 1 sm Coconut
  • 4 c Water


1 cn Red beans
1 md Onion
1 bn Green onions
1 tb Dried thyme leaves
1 ts Ground allspice
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 ts Salt
2 lb Rice

Take coconut out of shell and process or grate it in the water, then
squeeze it through double-layered cheesecloth. Use only the liquid; throw
gratings away. It works better if you let it sit for an hour or so before
sieving. Cook the beans in the coconut milk for one hour (simmering). Chop
onion and scallions and add with thyme, allspice, garlic, 1 tsp salt and 2
lbs rice. Add water to cover + one inch over top of rice and beans mixture.
(use 1st knuckle to guess). Bring to a boil, turn down heat and simmer,
covered, 40 minutes or until rice is done.
