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.

Instructions Checklist
  • 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! Read More

I like this recipe but MAN it's salty! I've made this twice and both times found the salt overpowering (and I'm not one to shy away from the salt shaker). Good flavor otherwise. I'd just recommend using half the salt the recipe calls for and adding more if necessary after tasting it. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite dishes. The spice can be customized to your liking. This dish has a distinct Asian flavor but is heartier than many other meatless dishes. Read More

Fairly similar to something I make already but the addition of ginger really kicked it up a notch. I'll continue to use my own recipe (onions black beans coconut milk curry powder mango) but will definitely add ginger next time as well. Read More

I think there's a difference between "spicy" and over-spiced. I felt that this recipe was over-spiced to the point of it giving that chalky sensation in your mouth. The recipe was definately edible just not one I'd save to my recipe box! Read More
