Coconut Lime Rice Pilaf
Photo by recipe author

Servings: 10-15
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

  • 4 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion (about 1 large)
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 3 cups uncooked brown rice
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely shredded or grated lime peel
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Melt coconut oil in Dutch oven or regular saucepan and add in onions and garlic; cook until onions are tender. Pour in the rice, water, lime peel and spices. Cook until the rice is tender, about 45 minutes. Serve topped with grated lime peel and ground black pepper on top.

Variations:

For a more coconut-y flavor, you can add some coconut cream concentrate to the rice when you add the water.

For a spicy coconut rice, add in some chili powder when adding the spices.

You can also use lemon zest instead of lime zest in this recipe.

This is a very nice recipe! Adjusted it to 1/2 for dinner tonight and was very pleased at how creamy it came out. I would actually call this a risotto instead of a pilaf. Going into my recipe file. :-)
