Black bean and vegetable curry with red rice

Hi everyone,

This is what I made in my slow cooker for dinner tonight and being a curry it made my home smell nice.

I diced onion added that with some water with a table spoon of gram flour dissolved in it with a tin of coconut milk and added the veg which were frozen and some black beans with curry spices including paprika and Thai sweet chilli sauce as that has a nice bite to it ands adds flavour.

The red rice I just washed and cooked until nice and soft I really like red rice. Its really easy preparing something then just leaving it cooking gently away and I enjoyed it a lot.

Enjoy your evening now folks.

Nice lunch catgirl. 😊

I love slow cooked dinners Jerry! All the flavours have plenty of time to blend and the big pay off is that you can start nice and early and just when you feel you don't want to do any more for the day.... dinner's ready! Your curry looks absolutely delicious and frankly I'm going to love anything with coconut milk in, but in curries it's a marriage made in heaven! Bon appetit!

Thank you Sue and you’re right coconut milk and curry are a dream team. 😊

Such an enticing looking dish. I'm sure the Thai sweet chilli sauce kicked it up a notch or two.

Hi Jerry,

Your curry looks and sounds really delicious for any meal. Glad you enjoyed it. :-)

We had coconut sauce for a curry dinner during the week with tofu and brown rice recently. The sauce was on top of the rice and tofu so everything could be drizzled with it. Really good. :-)

Thanks, Jerry. We try to have the tofu/coconut curry with rice once every week, but it depends on if we have the curry in the house or we have to get extra jars ordered/picked up. :-) We really enjoy it. :-)

That looks very nourishing! I use my slow cooker a lot, especially now that Autumn is heading our way😊

Hey thanks MadBunny I was sceptical but saw others meals and realised how useful it can be to prepare a meal and then just let it cook gently away making your home smell nice and then meal time you just lay the table. They have lots of benefits and are similar money to an electric kettle. Here’s a link to Slow cooker recipes on here:

Maybe this will inspire you to get one. 😊

Thank you for the link Jerry. I'm finding it harder to stand and cook meals these days so It might be very useful.

Hey your welcome as you will see our star zest uses her slow cooker a lot and yo great effect.I think that with frozen veg and meat you could prepare some healthy nourishing meals with minimum effort and let the cooker do it’s stuff.

You have RA I believe so I’m sorry about that MadBunny and you’re right to look for the best options for you,

I love using frozen veg and freeze my own, so good luck.

That sounds delicious Jerry, especially with sweet chilli sauce 😁 what a treat.

That reminds me I still have some black rice to finish off, I have never tried Red Rice but it certainly looks very nice

Thanks Debs black rice is just dark red I think it has a nice nutty texture. 😊
