As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, coconut milk lends itself to a multitude of cuisines, sweet and savoury dishes and everything in between. Following are a few simple recipe ideas featuring coconut milk.
Elle’s coconut rice
1 cup of rice
1 1/4 cups of water or coconut water
3/4 coconut milk
2 sprigs of thyme
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp chilli flakes
1 medium sized onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt (optional)
- After washing the rice, place it in a large saucepan, with the water or coconut water and coconut milk.
- Add rest of the ingredients then bring to the boil and allow to simmer until the rice is cooked.
- Serve immediately. You can also use as a base for rice salad or as a side.
