I would have NEVER thought of using it with beans! I will definitely try this one. Thanks!

Re: Coconut milk recipes

Oh, we use coconut milk for all kinds of stuff! I use it in soups to make them creamy (corn chowder, potato soup) or puddings, like rice pudding. It's also an easy way to make vegan "whipped topping" - blend it up with a little bit of sweetener, vanilla, and instant clear jel to thicken it. We make vegan ice cream with it as well.

Re: Coconut milk recipes

These are great. I also use mine in place of milk when I make waffles.
