Thai Rice and Beans Bowl (vegan | gluten-free)

Thai food seems to be on everyone’s top 5 favourite food lists of all time, and understandably so. Packed full of flavour, spice and usually a lot of coconut, it’s a collaboration of ingredients that can’t be celebrated enough.


This bowl is right up your alley if you’re a fan. An infusion of rich coconut cream, ginger and lemongrass surrounding fluffy rice and swimming smoothly through a hefty bunch of black beans with a bit of bite, all in just one bowl.


Serving size:

Makes 2 bowls


  • 200 ml coconut milk
  • 150g uncooked long grain rice
  • 200g cooked beans
  • ½ tsp ground lemongrass
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • Handful fresh coriander
  • Salt to taste


  1. Wash the rice thoroughly before placing in a saucepan with all ingredients except beans.
  2. Mix to coat each grain then top up with water until there is liquid to cover the surface of the rice.
  3. Bring to a boil then leave on the lowest heat for 10 minutes.
  4. When cooked, slowly stir in the beans and top with fresh coriander before serving.

Enjoy the cuisine of Thailand from the comfort of your own home.
