Best Blog Tips
Remember your Caribbean vacation? Jamaica and other Caribbean islands prepare rice and beans with a delicious added secret: coconut milk! The flavor is absolutely scrumptious! A real treat which is very easy to prepare. Here, we will share a simple recipe for this exotic and delicious dish.

2 cups brown rice

1 can Pinto beans or preferred kind of beans

1 medium onion (peeled)

1/2 cup green sweet pepper, chopped

1/4 cup sweet red pepper, chopped

Salt to taste

3/4 cup tomato sauce

3 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder

1 Tbsp. garlic powder

1 cilantro sprig

1/2 Tbsp. italian Seasoning (mix of sweet basil, oregano, sage in equal parts)

3 Tbsp. olive oil

3 1/2 cups water (to cook rice, or amount recommended in package)

1 can coconut milk Cook brown rice following package directions until rice begins to open up. Then, add the coconut milk and the beans and all the seasonings and oil. Mix thoroughly, and let simmer covered, over low heat, until the rice has absorbed all the liquid. If a little bit of more water is needed, add it, and let it cook until done. If you really want to be "there" get yourself some ripe plantains and either bake them or slice them lengthwise and "fry" them in a hot skillet barely "painted" with olive oil.

That's like a tropical vacation in winter!
