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).
