South Asian influenced beans with a kick. Great served over rice or in a tortilla as leftover burritos. Serve over rice (jasmine rice is my first choice). They come out really spicy, so add only as much spice as you're comfortable with.

  1. Stir the coconut milk, ginger, garlic, and parsley into a deep skillet over medium heat. Season with salt, turmeric, cumin, chili powder, and curry paste. Bring to a slow boil. Then stir in black beans, kidney beans, and red and green bell peppers; simmer, stirring often, until about 1/3 of the liquid is evaporated and the sauce has thickened, about 30 to 45 minutes. Cover, and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes.

This sounded interesting so thought I'd try it... I reduced the ginger to 2 Tbsp. To round this into a full meal, I added a bit of onion, a package of thawed frozen spinach, some mushrooms, and paper-thin carrot slices. It would be good with other veggies as well. I needed all the juice, so simmered it covered, and served over jasmine rice. It was delicious! Not at all too spicy, but I do like spicy things!


My husband and father-in-law (chile-heads) both loved this! It was a little hot for me, so the next I make it I'll take some of the coconut milk and pour it in a small saucepan and add half the hot ingredients to that pot so they can add the "hot sauce" to their taste and the main pot isn't too hot for me. And it reheats fabulously!

This is an excellent vegan dish. I ended up also adding carrots, chiles, onion, squash and mushrooms to round it out and eliminate the need for a vegetable side dish. I also added to soft veggies (the mushrooms, squash, and bell pepper) very close to the end instead of at the beginning of the simmer. If you're the type who doesn't like super-soft and soggy vegetables, you should do this. It'll keep them a bit crunchy.
