Coconut black rice. You just did a double take. Rightly so.
Your cooking world is about to be turned upside down.
Because not only are we dealing with the most tantalizing rice evereverever, this is all vegetarian! But so sexy. You just won't believe it.
We're adding coconut milk, cilantro and lime juice to some nutty black rice, and serving a roasted cauliflower steak on top. And peppers! And a teensy sriracha drizzle because we can.
Let's make eeeet.
Start with a cup of black rice! If you can't find it (at any health or Asian market), brown or white rice is just fine.
Add the rice and a can of coconut milk to a rice cooker. If you're using a stovetop method, that's great! Just do what you'd normally with water, but with the coconut milk. Cook that until it's done.
In the meantime, let's get some cauliflower steaks roasted. Good heavens. Some fresh thyme, a little olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper. That's it!
Oh, look at our rice. It's hard to photograph black rice. But you get the idea. I added cilantro and lime to this mess. And it was good.
While the "steaks" roast, sear up some bell peppers! More antioxidants = you look like Gwyneth Paltrow.
Don't quote me on that.
And here we are. Rice, peppers, our steaks. Man, oh man. Serve it with extra lime wedges and a tiny sriracha drizzle.
