3/4 (14.5 ounce) can
black beans, rinsed and drained
fresh lime juice
1 (14 ounce) can
This meal just tasted tropical! I didn't know what to expect, but it was great. I used 1/2 the coconut milk to cut some calories, a whole can of black beans, and 2 bananas.
This definitely seemed more like a breakfast porridge than a dinner. It tasted good but was very rich and sweet. Odd for dinner! FYI - I made 1/2 cup (dry) basmati rice with this dish and it seemed to be the right proportions.
I thought the dish would be too soupy, too sweet, under-seasoned but it's absolutely perfect. I served it on rice and as it takes no time to make, it's going to be a staple meal in my house. My kids also loved it, no doubt because it's rich and sweet and comforting. I will likely add the entire can of beans next time as well as the whole lime and an extra half of a banana so that I might have left-overs.
I kept stumbling on this recipe while doing ingredient searches. Since I had all of the ingredients, I gave it a whirl. It was certainly interesting, but a little on the sweet side and very soupy despite using less than half the coconut milk.
This tasted just as I thought it would. Really perfect for Winter blahs! Hubby loved it, and the kids enjoyed it as well. It is sweet, but not too sweet, and the beans mellow the flavor. I used coconut oil as the cooking oil, and the bananas were perfect! Yeah, there are a lot of calories... that said, this is a VERY filling meal, and the serving size is (in my opinion) very large (I am a big person, and I couldnt eat my whole portion!). Thank you for sharing! (I forgot to mention, we served this over jasmine rice)
I quite enjoyed this sauce. It was good over the rice... I think I may try it over some pancakes as well, since it was such a sweet, dessert-y flavour. My husband did not enjoy this when I served it hot, but actually liked it better later on after it had soaked into the rice and been refrigerated. I also really loved finding a sweet recipe to use blackbeans!
This intrigued me, I had all the ingredients and gave it a try. My rating is closer to 3 1/2-4 stars. I used the entire can of coconut milk and the whole thing turned out very soupy and runny so I'll cut that back next time. I served over brown basmati rice and the dish kind of felt like a breakfast porridge. I liked the taste and may just eat it for breakfast!
Definitely interesting...but didn't suit my taste. Not bad at all. I think the sweet/soupy/warm situation just confused me. I decided to put in some oatmeal to thicken it and will eat it for breakfast. Give it a shot for fun and curiosity!
