coconut red bean summer stew

This stew is so summer flavorful that you will feel like you are in a tropical island while eating it. Mango Pineapple shake on the side is optional but I strongly suggest it :P. It’s also very easy to make, as all ingredients go into the pot together and you don’t really have to pay attention to it while cooking. The smell of it while cooking though it will definitely make you dream.

Go on youtube and search for a Bob Marley playlist. Hit Play. Heat the coconut oil in a medium pot over low-medium heat. Add the garlic and let it simmer while you are chopping the other ingredients. Add all ingredients in the pot, bring to a boil, lower the heat to low-medium and cook for about 45 minutes. While cooking, dance. Serve over aromatic rice like jasmine or basmati. Enjoy!
