Can we all just agree that coconut is basically the essence of summer? I really can’t imagine anything more perfect for this hot, lazy season, and if you took a peek inside my home you’d see evidence of that. I have coconut-scented everything – shampoo, soap, sunscreen, lotion, candles. The list goes on.
And added to that list is now the easiest coconut rice you’ll ever make in your life. Whereas coconut rice has always made me somewhat nervous, this version boils in water and coconut water, with coconut cream stirred in at the end for ultra creamy goodness and loads of coconut flavor. Mixed with toasted coconut, pineapple and cilantro, this is one coconut rice that goes well with both Mexican and Asian inspired dishes!
So let’s live up the coconutty goodness of summer shall we?!
