CrockPot Coconut Rice and Beans from 365 Days of Slow Cooking

CrockPot Coconut Rice and Beans
CrockPot Coconut Rice and Beans are easy and sound delicious!  (Photo from 365 Days of Slow Cooking.)

When I spotted this recipe for CrockPot Coconut Rice and Beans from 365 Days of Slow Cooking, the first ingredient I noticed was the coconut milk.  I'm a big fan of coconut milk and I can imagine what creaminess and flavor it will bring to these coconut rice and beans.  I also love how the recipe uses brown rice and adds a bit of lime juice for a tangy treat.  Yes, there is some chicken in the background in Karen's photo, but if you're looking for a Meatless Monday dish, just ignore that and focus on the rice and beans.

Ingredients for this recipe:
Coconut milk, brown rice, minced garlic, black beans, salt, sugar, coconut oil, boiling water, lime juice, green onion for garnish (optional).
