  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)

Directions:

    1. 😀 I know! I realized after I posted my recipe and then went through all my emails and saw your coconut rice recipe 😊. That’s what I get for not checking my emails before posting ☺️. Your recipe is traditional authentic cocomut rice! Mine is just a quick rice dish with cocnut oil and garlic to go with any Asian curry. I hope you will give it a try!
