This rice and beans dish is seasoned with delicious creole spices and cooked in coconut milk. Serve with fresh mint and a squeeze of fresh lime juice or just as is. Beans are high in fiber and when combined with rice they are a complete protein. Black beans are also a great source of folic acid, magnesium, potassium, and iron
