Coconut Basil Brown Rice
Tired of the same old boring brown rice? Here's an exotic way to jazz it up! I adapted the recipe slightly to make it Vegetarian or Vegan.
cup short grain brown rice
1 cup organic vegetable broth
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted
1/4 cup basil, finely chopped
2 T green onion ends, finely sliced
small knob of ghee (clarified butter) or vegan margarine
good pinch sea salt
Combine rice, broth, milk, salt and ghee into pot and bring to a boil. Stir well then reduce to low. Stir in basil, cover and cook for roughly 50 minutes or until rice is fluffy and cooked through.
Dry toast the coconut flakes in a frying pan for a few minutes or until a nice golden brown. Set aside.
Once rice is fully cooked, stir in coconut flakes and green onion ends. Hit with a fresh pinch of salt and serve with extra green onion on top for garnish

This is so Cynfully Good........
