COCONUT RICE RECIPE

…whetting your taste bud one meal at a time

img_4536

Coconut rice is one of my favorite ways to prepare my rice. It’s a yummy lunch idea made with coconut milk and you can get coconut milk from any grocery store. If you desire to use whole fresh coconut, note that you can chop and blend to get the milk out of it. All you need to do is to place it on a sieve to strain out the milk.

Coconut milk gives your rice a twist and new taste. It’s healthy and nourishing. This is one of the recipes you should try out this holiday season. You can serve it with any meat of your choice. You can also enjoy it with fried plantains, salad, or moi-moi.
