Jamaican Beans and Rice

75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
15 ingredients
4-6 servings
The idea for this recipe came from the book Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig. The way I make it these days, however, is not much like the recipe in the book :) This is a really tasty, very filling, "meal in a bowl" type recipe. It has all the creamy, starchy goodness of macaroni and cheese but with no dairy! Coconut milk provides vital medium chain fatty acids and beneficial saturated fats to your diet, as well as tasting absolutely delicious. 3 cups of liquid to 1 1/2 cups of rice will make a risotto like consistency. If you want a bit more sauce increase the liquid to 3 1/2 cups total.
