1/2 cup dried kidney beans, soaked overnight, drained

2 cups unsweetened coconut milk

1 1/2 garlic cloves, minced

4 scallions, finely chopped

1/2 sprig fresh thyme, finely chopped

1 1/2 cups uncooked rice

1 1/4 cups water

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 tablespoon sugar

Salt and ground black pepper


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the drained beans with the coconut milk in a medium saucepan. Cook covered over medium heat until the beans are tender but not mushy, about 1 hour. Add all the remaining ingredients and cook covered over medium heat until the rice absorbs all the liquid, about 15 minutes. Season and serve.
