Coconut Rice

Coconut rice is one of our family’s favorite breakfast “treats.”

I love that it is simple to prepare and packed with yummy nutrients that leave our tummies full and happy.


Coconut Rice

6 cups water
3 tablespoons kefir or plain yogurt
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups brown rice
1 can coconut milk
2 cups blueberries
½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

Soak rice in 3 cups water plus 3 tablespoons kefir / yogurt overnight (6 to 12 hours). Strain and rinse rice. Bring 3 cups water to a boil, add salt and stir in rice. Cover and allow rice to cook until soft and tender. Stir in coconut milk, shredded coconut, and maple syrup. Allow extra fluid to evaporate by cooking on low heat for a minute or two. Top with blueberries and watch the rice turn blue.
