Ingredients

Directions

Bring beans, 10 cups water, and garlic to boil at high heat. Simmer for about 1 hour or until beans are soft.

Crack coconut, remove shell, and cut meat into small pieces. Put half of the coconut into blender with 2 cups water and puree. Repeat for remaining coconut. Strain the coconut through a strainer squeezing the milk out of the coconut (you will end up with approximately 3 cups of coconut milk).

Add coconut milk, scallions, salt, and butter to the beans and bring to a boil. Then add rice and stir with a fork. Turn to low heat and cook for 30 minutes or until water is cooked out. Be sure not to stir the rice until water is gone.
