Coconut Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
I'm not sure what the original recipe tastes like because I took liberty with it based on the reviews and on my own creativity. The version I came up with was awesome though! I made the following modifications: I doubled the recipe for a dinner party; in place of the butter I used 1 T of stick margarine and 1 T virgin coconut oil (it is a coconut dish after all) In place of the shallot (just didn't have one) I used a small onion, also a tsp of minced garlic (the refrigerated kind in a jar) I used plain old long grain rice--I'm sure Jasmine would be awesome, just didn't have any Used the whole can of coconut milk Used two cups of chicken broth in place of the water (freshly made) I was generous with the nutmeg--two full pinches and probably 1 1/2 more or so Then I also threw in about a T of brown sugar, and additional T of coconut oil, a handful of shredded sweetened coconut and a pinch or two of sea salt Then, I used only one can of black beans and that seemed plenty for me, but more would be fine too Could have used a bit more salt, but not much.
