Coconut Cilantro Turmeric Rice (low histamine)

🥥 This coconut cilantro turmeric rice is so rich, creamy, and flavorful. You only need 9 ingredients to make it: rice, water, coconut milk and oil, salt, black pepper, turmeric, leeks, and cilantro. If golden milk was a rice dish, this would be it. If you’re not a fan of turmeric, leave it out. The coconut milk and cilantro add enough flavor and texture.




1 c rice


2 c water


½ c coconut milk (canned, full fat) + 2 tbsp coconut oil


Handful cilantro


1 leek stem, chopped


½ tbsp coco oil (to saute onion and garlic)


1 tsp salt


Crushed pink peppercorns, to taste


¼ tsp turmeric




  1. Rinse the rice until the water runs clean. Bring water to a boil in pot, add rice, reduce heat to low and cook for 20 minutes. In a separate pan, saute leeks. Once wilted, add garlic, and continue sauteeing until the garlic is browned. Add the cooked rice, and mix. Add salt, black pepper, and turmeric. Add coconut milk and coconut oil. Stir and let the rice cook for 10 min, stirring frequently. Add cilantro. Mix it in. Remove from heat.


**GF/DF/LOW-HISTAMINE (I followed mastcell360 low histamine foods list very strictly initially, then added some foods from the SIGHI list as I began to tolerate more foods, all under the care of a dietitian. A low histamine diet is restrictive and not meant to be followed long-term, as nutrient deficiencies may develop.)**
