Coconut Rice

Find our new recipe: Coconut rice!

Today is one of those days that I would love to stay home, have a great warm breakfast next to my sunny (not-so-sunny-today) window, and cook all day while snowing outside. But, instead, I have to go to the office, plans are not going to get done by themselves, aren’t they? For this reason I thought to share with you this coconut rice recipe, perfect during this cold season!

Whenever I have one of these days, not so often, I promise, I try to gift myself with one of my favorite comfy food. So that is why I’ve prepared these marvelous coconut rice for lunch.

I love rice, almost in all of its versions, but the fact that it is cooked in stock and coconut milk makes it so mellow that it is like having a piece of a cloud!
