coconut cilantro rice

Think rice is boring? This might change your mind. Creamy coconut, tangy lime, and crisp cilantro combine in a burst of flavor!

Coconut Cilantro Rice
Serves 3-4

1 c. brown rice
14 oz. lite coconut milk
1/3 c. water
1/2 tsp. fresh lime juice
1/2 c. cilantro, chopped

Heat milk and water in a medium pot until it begins to boil (keep an eye on this, once the coconut milk starts to boil, it can bubble out of the pot quickly). Add rice, stir, cover, and reduce heat to low. Allow to simmer 45 minutes. Let sit 5-10 minutes. Stir in cilantro.

This can be made into a quick meal by mixing in black beans or kidney beans at the end. Or it makes a nice side dish. Tonight, we'll have ours with fried tempeh dipped in peanut sauce.
