Mexican Curry Stew
  • ⅔ cup uncooked brown rice
  • 2 11-ounce packages So Delicious Dairy Free Original Culinary Coconut Milk
  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup water (I use this to rinse the tomato and coconut milk containers)

  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed
  • 1 lb package frozen corn
  • 1 cup diced peperoncinis
  • 2 whole grain tortillas torn into little pieces (dried out ones work great for this)
  • 1 lb package frozen shelled edamame
  • 1 lb package frozen spinach
  1. Mix everything but edamame and spinach in a large soup pot.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Turn down to medium low and simmer with lid on until rice is done (about 20 minutes).
  4. Stir in edamame and spinach.
  5. Cook over medium low for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until edamames are cooked (they will loose their bright green color) and soup is warm again.
  6. Serve warm.
Reheats and freezes well, great for lunches. Adjust amounts to suite personal taste.
