Cook time: 45 minutes / serves 12
- 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
- 3 cups brown rice
- 6 1/2 cups water
- 1 fresh lime
- 1/2 cup dried unsweetened toasted coconut
Heat coconut oil and rice in pan until rice darkens in color, stirring constantly. Pour in water 2 cups at a time. Leave uncovered on high heat to boil. When rice has swelled cover pan half way and let cook for 10-15 minutes. Then cover pan entirely, turn on low, and let simmer until rice is tender.
Fluff with fork and squeeze lime on top. You may add some butter on top as well if you like and garnish with toasted coconut. Serve with chicken or fish.
