Plain Coconut rice

……..hmmmmmm is the first expression you get once a scoop of coconut rice gets into your mouth. That unique feel of natural coconut flavor on the taste buds usually gives way for a nod of approval with the comment…….Very nice!”. Originally, coconut rice is a simple meal made with Coconut milk, Rice and Seasoning. The wonderful thing about coconut rice is, it still retains that yummy coconutty flavor even after absorbing the various seasonings added to it. In this recipe, I decided to put in a little twist to make it a little bit more interesting by adding my special chicken stock……Enjoy!

    Looks yummy! Have you tried using a 1/4 cup of pure extra virgin coconut oil? Living foods brand is the best, best I tell you (got it from Health plus pharmacy here in Lekki, but it's available anywhere fine foods are sold - check it out on Amazon.com). Used it for Jollof rice this evening and I tell you that literally as I type, my husband is having seconds :-D. The coconut flavor is resplendent, and the health benefits are myriad. No more coconut milk for me :-)

  6. Thanks lola! I've never tried using coconut oil alone in the preparation of coconut rice as the basic requirement is "Coconut Milk". Would check it out and if it's really nice, I'd definitely endorse it here ;)
