Coconut Cilantro Rice

Carbs are a healthy source of energy and should be incorporated into your meals – don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! This rice elevates any dish.

(Makes 4 servings) 


  • 1/2 cup uncooked rice (we prefer brown, but white is ok too!)
  • 2 cups canned coconut milk (+ more or water if rice isn’t to desired texture)
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro


  1. Add rice and coconut milk to a saucepan. Turn on heat to medium high. Once boiling, turn down to low. Let simmer until rice has absorbed all liquid, about 20 min. If rice is desired consistency, turn off and stir in cilantro. If rice is too tough and not desired consistency, add 1/2 cup liquid (coconut milk or water) at a time.
