1 cup pf rice (white or brown)
1 cup of water (for white rice)
1 3/4 cup of water (for brown rice)
1/2 cup of coconut milk (may substitute with water or broth)
2 to 3 tablespoons of Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp of salt
Seasoning spices (blended mixture of garlic, green onions, and parsley)
Pepper, thyme, parsley (for aroma)
1/2 cup of your favorite dry beans
6 to 8 cups of water.
Preparing dry beans takes some time.
About two hours.
Use a lot of water and keep your fire on low-medium.
Use about 4 to 6 cups of water.
If your fire is on "high", be watchful as
the water will dry quickly and you'll have to replace it until
the beans are cooked.
Red Pinto Beans
Let the beans boil for about two hours.
Add more water as it evaporates.
The beans are ready when they are soft,
and you can effortlessly squish them between your fingers.
Save the "boiling juice" as it is this very boiling juice you will
use to prepare your mixed rice.
|In a saucepan, add 2 - 3 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. |
When the oil is hot, add in your spices (a blended mixture of
garlic, green onion, and parsley)
