Curried Pilaf with Kidney Beans
From: Sherry Rose

Fatfree Indian Beans and Rice

Mix together in a 3 to 5 quart pot or a rice cooker:

  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 15 or 16 oz can kidney beans, drained
  • 1 apple chopped (don't use red delicious; use golden delicious or other)
  • 2 tsp vegetarian bouillon (or omit water and use 2 1/4 cups vegetarian broth)
  • 1 tsp salt (if bouillon does not have salt; otherwise omit salt)
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder, mild
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut
  • 2 1/4 cups water
Cook, covered, until water is gone and rice is done.

Notes: This is great served in the acorn squash boats.
The sweet flavors really compliment each other.

Or stuff this mixture into pitas.

I think a rice cooker is a great investment.
You can find ones that sell for under $15, and they can be used for oatmeal, rice mixes, steaming vegetables, and a host of other things.
And, your rice will never again boil over!
