An Easy Recipe for Today :: Coconut-Black Bean Rice

What to serve with your chicken?  Sometime we just need an easy recipe for a side dish.  This is it, gals. This rice recipe will be a yummy edition to your repertoire.  It came with an easy chicken recipe, but I like the idea of making the rice with any entree- Chicken, Pork, Beef.

The coconut milk adds a richness and silkiness, but not overtly coconuttiness.  Is that even a word?

Try it and let me know what you think. A Sursee Side dish that is delish.
