24 Jun Mango Sticky Rice
🍚This recipe was inspired by one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco.
🥭 Mango sticky rice is delicious as a yummy side to a savory dish, or as a dessert (minus the cilantro). I love to have this with grilled chicken and veggies.
💜 It’s such a treat to be able to safely have foods you truly enjoy, that remind you of your old life (pre-chronic illness).
1 ½ c dry long-grain white rice
1 c water
1 can unsweetened coconut milk (fave is Native Forest Simple Coco Milk-no additives/BPA-free can)
1 tbsp coconut sugar
Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt
2 tsp extra virgin coco oil
1 cup diced mango
Garnish: small handful of chopped cilantro and a slice of lime
1. Bring rice, water, coconut milk, coconut oil, coco sugar, and sea salt to a boil in a small pot over medium-high heat.
2. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer rice until tender, 15–20ish minutes.
3. Remove from heat, let rice sit (covered) for 5 minutes.
