We eat a lot of rice at home (in Nigeria) and I'm always in search of ways to jazz it up. So far, my tastiest rice recipes involve...coconut milk and this recipe is no exception. Rice, kidney beans and fragrant lemon thyme - a warming meal on any night of the week. —Kitchen Butterfly
What You'll Need
kidney beans (from a tin)
2 sprigs of (lemon) thyme
or 1 teaspoon dried thyme (though flavour will be different, though yummy still)
Put butter in a large pan on medium heat till melted, then add onions and garlic and fry till soft
Rinse kidney beans under a running tap and add to the pan with the coconut milk and thyme sprigs. Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes
Add the rice and the 2nd tablespoon of butter, season with salt and let simmer, covered till rice is cooked.
