  1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the shallot, and cook until the shallot has softened and turned translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the rice and stir until coated with the butter. Pour in the coconut milk and water; season with nutmeg. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender, about 18 minutes. Stir in the black beans, and cook a few minutes until hot.

This was incredibly delicious and quick and easy to prepare. I added a tsp sugar, some fish sauce, celery, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper, as well as some chicken. Also used the full can of co...

Nice side with spicy jerked chicken

Similar to Rumbi Rice. Great with grilled chicken and steamed veggies in a bowl.

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 follow...
