  1. Boil a kettle. In a jug, dissolve the creamed coconut in 100ml boiling water.
  2. Rinse the brown rice and place in a saucepan with 400ml boiling water and a pinch of sea salt. Simmer for 20-25 mins, then drain.
  3. Peel and chop the sweet potato into 1cm cubes. Cut the red pepper into bite-sized pieces. Trim the green beans and slice in half. Roughly chop the tomatoes.
  4. In a large dry pan, toast the coconut chips on a medium heat for 2 mins until turning golden. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  5. In the same pan, heat 1/2 tbsp oil on a medium heat and cook the sweet potato for 5 mins, then add the jerk seasoning, red pepper and green beans for a further 3 mins.
  6. Drain the black beans. To the pan with the vegetables, add the black beans, chopped tomatoes and creamed coconut. Season with sea salt and black pepper and simmer for a further 10 mins until the curry has thickened. Stir in the juice from half of the lime.
