I am going to introduce you to something scary……..

Brown rice!!!!! Okay so not very scary but a lot of people  seem to be hessitant of using this over white rice. But brown rice is so much better for you. A great wa t to make brown rice is with coconut milk. This makes it so rich and creamy.

 

Coconut ginger brown rice:

2 cups brown rice

1 can of coconut milk

enough water added to the coconnut milk to make it 4 cups of liquid

2 tsp- 2 tbsp of ground ginger

In a pot add all the ingredients. Place heat on high. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down to a simmer and cover for about 45 minutes.

 

Look at the creamy rice! YUM!!!!

Now you need something to go with it…
