This Week's Recipe Success

Chad recently had a beans and rice urge so we decided to try out a few recipes found on the internet. After monkeying around with the first one until we were satisfied, we came up with the following recipe:

Coconut Beans and Rice

1 can red kidney beans
1 can coconut milk
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
4 scallions, diced
1/4-1/2 tsp tarragon
1 1/2 C uncooked rice
1 1/4 C water
1 tsp salt
1/2 Tbs sugar
1 can of pineapple tidbits (any size you like)
lime juice
spicy sausage (optional)

Drain pineapple and reserve juice. Mix all ingredients except lime and pineapple juices in a pot. Heat to boiling and turn heat to low. Simmer for 30 minutes, covered. Remove from heat. Add lime and pineapple juice to taste.

We used a spicy chicken sausage with cilantro and full-strength coconut milk. It was pretty delicious, quick to put together, and something that I could cook even with Abby around "helping."
