INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the aromatics

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in medium saucepan pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic, ginger, turmeric, cumin, coriander, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until fragrant, 1 to 3 minutes. (4-serving meal: use 2 tbsp olive oil)

2
Make the broth

Add tomato, lime leaf, coconut milk, and 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer. Stir in green beans, spinach, and butter beans, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until vegetables are bright green and tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in lime juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. (4-serving meal: use 1 cup water)

3
Cook the brown rice

Make small tear at top of brown rice bag and microwave for 1 minute. (TIP: If you don’t have a microwave, combine precooked brown rice and 1 tbsp water in small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cover and steam until warmed through, 3 to 4 minutes.)

4
Finish and serve

Divide rice between bowls and top with braised butter beans with coconut. Serve with lime wedges. Tuck in!
