COCONUT LIME RICE
Light, fresh and tropical!
You will need:
1 c rice (brown, jasmine, or whatever you are in the mood for)
1 can or 1 c coconut milk (canned with the coconut cream is the BEST!)
1/2 c filtered water
1/2 bunch organic cilantro, chopped
1 fresh lime
optional: Fresh coconut meat and a grater or coconut flakes
Place rice, coconut milk and water in a pot on the stove or in your rice cooker and bring to a boil.
(Optional: if you have (unsweetened or fresh) coconut flakes, throw in a handful, but this Simple Side is delicious either way.)
Boil on medium heat until it's no longer watery and the rice is soft.
Drain and add to a mixing/ serving bowl.
Squeeze in the fresh lime juice and fold in the 1/2 bunch of chopped cilantro.
The aroma of the coconut, lime and cilantro is so potent while you are prepping this side, I love making it! You'll savor every bite!
Garnish with some lime zest and freshly shaved coconut if you want and enjoy!
*Organic DIY skin care tip* Save a little coconut cream from the can of coconut milk, add in around a dollop of coconut oil and about 1 tbsp of coconut sugar for an awesome exfoliating coconut mask! You only need enough coconut cream + coconut oil to cover your face, so not a lot. Let sit on face + lips for 10 min and lightly scrub off so the coconut sugar can exfoliate the skin and lips.
