Black Beans & Coconut Rice
By Ro Morse
PADUCAH - Banks Market Recipe of the Week - Serves 4

1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup minced green onion
1/4 cup minced sweet onion
1 cup uncooked jasmine rice
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
1/4 cup water
A pinch ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed 
In a small sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the onions and cook until they are tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the rice and stir until coated with the butter. Pour in the coconut milk and water. Stir in nutmeg, salt & pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender, about 15-20 minutes. Stir in the black beans. Cook a few more minutes until hot.

For a yummy dessert, substitute raisins for beans plus a couple tablespoons of honey.
