Coconut Rice


Ingredients:
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 cup wild rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (14-ounce) can unsweetened coconut milk (about 2 cups)
  • 3 cups diced, cooked sweet potatoes, peeled (about 2-3 potatoes)
  • 1 cup sweet peas, cooked
  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions:
  1. Rinse rice in a fine mesh sieve to remove the surface starches. (They're what makes rice sticky.) 
  2. Mix water, coconut milk, and rice in a large saucepan. Heat to boiling. 
  3. Reduce heat to simmer, stirring occasionally. 
  4. Cook, uncovered, until liquid evaporates, about 40-45 minutes.
  5. While rice is cooking, prepare the rest of the ingredients. Keep vegetables and beans warm. 
  6. When rice is finished, add ingredients to rice. Stir well, and serve immediately.
  7. Mix in chopped macadamia nuts before serving.
