Combine beans, rice, bay leaves, 1½ teaspoons garlic and 3 tablespoons oil in large soup kettle. Add enough stock or water to come 1 inch over ingredients. Cook over medium heat until beans are just tender, about 40 minutes, watching beans carefully so mixture does not burn. Add extra stock or water if needed.
In medium saucepan, saute onions, curry powder, cayenne pepper and reserved 1 ½ teaspoons garlic in reserved 3 tablespoons oil until onions are translucent. Add peppers, tomatoes, salt, sugar and lemon juice; simmer until peppers are tender, about 15 minutes.
Add onion mixture to bean mixture. Gently stir in coconut milk and heat through. Adjust water to thickness desired and add additional salt if needed. Remove bay leaves and serve. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
Turbinado sugar, coconut milk and vanilla soy beverage are available at Outpost and may be found at other natural foods or specialty foods stores.
