"Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up..." - Harry NilssonSummer time is just around the corner, but in my kitchen it's already summer time. I shopped earlier today and stocked up on limes, lemons, coconut juices, shredded coconuts, watermelons, etc...you can tell what my mindset is.
Here’s a flavorful dish that will transport you to the Caribbean islands with a simple bite. One of my all time fave rice dishes, Coconut-Lime Rice. The coconut flavor yells "where's the beach" and the lime just keeps you refreshed.
Coconut Lime Rice
- 2 cups Jasmine Rice
- 3 cups Water*
- 2 Tablespoons Virgin Coconut Oil
- 2 teaspoons Salt
- 1 whole Lime, Juiced
- ¾ cups Fresh Cilantro, Minced
Ideal pairing: fish, or on it's own.
*If you want to turn up the volume on the coconut flavors then do what my mom does, she uses coconut milk in place of water.
