If you haven’t had coconut lime rice, you’re in for a treat. Coconut rice is popular in Southeast Asian cuisine. Lime and cilantro are a bright twist to the traditional dish. It’s creamy, slightly sweet, and fragrant. Coconut milk and CBD coconut oil are somewhat fruity and creamy. Jasmine rice and lime are fragrant and balance out the richness from the coconut components. Vegetable broth, my little secret, add the perfect amount of salty and savory. The CBD coconut oil makes this dish incredibly satisfying and an excellent way to incorporate your daily dose of full-spectrum hemp oil.
Coconut lime rice is warm, cozy, and creamy–– a deeply satisfying venture. It’s perfect for cooler weather. Basmati rice, or glutinous rice, could be substituted for jasmine rice. But, if possible, stop at the store to pick up some jasmine rice. Its floral notes amplify this recipe tenfold. This recipe is a perfect pairing for a Southeast Asian curry like Thai red curry or an Indonesian (or Malaysian-style) rendang. Even an Indian curry would go great!
This recipe is an MCT powerhouse! Studies suggest MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) may lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, increase brain function and memory, and boost energy, and assist in weight loss. Coconut milk and our full-spectrum CBD coconut oil are both rich in MCTs!
