Beetroot Coconut Rice

Beetroot Coconut Rice

Last night  i was cleaning up the fridge from the leftover ingredients.I had some beets,some coconut ,some artichoke juice.Where can it all go together and come back with amazing tasting result?Rice of course.I made enough to last us for 3 meals.You can adjust the recipe for your family.

  • So the beets,which i am not a big fan of,is apparently very good for you,i have been told.The reason i decided to buy it and make it work.So i simple pulsed and grated.
  • I was possessed and bought whole coconut.It is EVERY BIT GOOD and SWEET and LOT better then the one sold dehydrated(tasteless) or the one in baking aisle.BUT and it is big BUT,it was TOOOOO MUCH work to get the goodies out of it.So until i figure out the easy way to get the coconut out of coconut,i am sticking with packed unsweetened version. 


  • I hate wasting food,so i try to get the most use of whatever i buy.Doesn’t mean there is no food wastage in our house but i try.So i had bought jarred artichokes weeks ago,i used the artichoke but could not throw away the liquid.It had olive oil and minimal marinading spices.I saved it for later.
  • Rice is bland by itself,so beets and coconut gives it substance and body and artichoke juice adds flavor.
