hi all, i was wondering if someone in this forum could solve an ongoing arguement a friend and i were having the ingredients for stewed beans vs. rice and beans. now the question is if coconut milk is in both dishes or just rice and beans. i said we should find out how miss marla cooks them, cause she is the queen in our opinion. if someone could ask her we would really enjoy it. thanks.

Here are some recipes. These are not from Miss Marla, but from a Belizean cookbook.

Stew Beans & White Rice
1 cup R.K. Beans
2 cups rice
2 Tbsp margarine
A piece of salt meat
An onion (sliced)
1 cup coconut milk
4 cups water or coconut milk
1 cup milk
1 clove garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Soak beans then boil until tender with garlic.
2. Boil salt meat to take out some of the salt.
3. Add the coconut milk, onion and seasonings.
4. Leave on low fire to simmer until liquid is thick.
5. Pick and wash rice.
6. Have the four cups of liquid boil, add a little salt and the margarine and keep covered over low heat.
7. Add rice to this liquid and leave to cook about 20 - 25 minutes over very low heat.
8. Serve both together - the beans can be spread over the rice or put at the side of the plate as desired.

Rice and beans
1 cup R.K. Beans
1 cup thick coconut milk
1 clove garlic (optional)
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 cups rice
1 onion, sliced
Piece of salt meat
(cut into small pieces)

5. Cook over gentle heat until liquid is absorbed.
6. Stir gently with a fork, and add a little water from time to time unitl rice is cooked.

(Some favorite meat dishes with rice and beans are: stuffed baked chicken, stew chicken, stew fish, fried fish or meat balls.)
