Coconut Rice

Coconut rice is one of my favourite things to cook because it can make pretty much any boring meal a lot more fun and special. It’s also super easy to make so that doesn’t hurt 🙂

In this picture I made the coconut rice with Hemsley & Hemsley‘s Chicken Curry which I’m sure I’ll blog about soon because it’s always a success!

Here’s a recipe that I use, that has pretty much been compiled over time from dozens of other recipes I’ve tried (some more successful than others…)

What you’ll need:
1 cup of rice
1 chicken stock cube dissolved into 1 cup of boiling water
1 small onion
1 can of coconut milk (preferably full fat)
1 tsp coconut oil

I use the organic Kallo chicken stock but feel free to keep it veggie if you prefer!


How it’s made:
Dice the onions and cook in the coconut oil on a medium heat until soft
Add rice and mix in with onions

Stir occasionally until rice begins to look almost transparent
Add coconut milk and chicken stock ( you should hear that amazing sizzling sound!)

Put lid on pot and leave on low heat for +/- 10 minutes or until rice has used all the liquid.

If you’d like an extra crunch, I often heat up some almond flakes in coconut oil then add them to the rice when it’s finished cooking 🙂
