Easy Lime-Coconut Rice

This Coconut Rice goes perfectly alongside any Thai or Indian dish but it’s equally delicious with just about any other style entree. If you’re not a huge fan of cilantro and/or lime, they can easily omitted and will still yield a tasty final product. We don’t have rice often, as we like to find alternative ways to eat more veggies, but sometimes it just goes best with what I’m making for dinner. Coconut cauliflower rice is a great substitution if you’re limiting your carbs!

Quick tip: If you’re using a rice cooker, proceed with the manufacturer’s instructions.
