The favorite easy food here right now - canned black beans and quick coconut rice. You'll also learn a little something about me here: I rarely measure. Still . . .
1 can of coconut milk (not sweetened! And my family did notice a difference when I used "lite")
About 1 c rice (I cheat and use minute, and it still works, though the results are more satisfying with traditional rice, I'm sure)
Heat coconut milk almost to boiling. Add a wee bit of nutmeg.
Stir in rice, turn to v. low, and watch carefully.
When the rice has absorbed the coconut milk, place in oven-proof platter, in oven on warm.
Heat a can of black beans on stove-top.
As you do this, slice mango and red bell pepper.
Remove rice platter from oven. Make a dent in the middle, fill with black beans. Garnish with the mango and red pepper. If you want to add a seventh ingredient :) garnish with lime slices as well.
This side dish good with fish, is also a great meal when made in greater quantity.
