The Ultimate Coconut Rice Recipe (gluten free and vegetarian).

I was recently challenged to put together a coconut rice recipe, however the recipe must be foolproof. According to the person who emailed me, they have a difficult time cooking rice as it usually ends up a messy mush in the pot or under-cooked. They were looking for perfectly cooked coconut rice, grainy in texture and rich in Caribbean coconut flavors. Being a rice dish I thought it would be a good time to also have it appeal to vegetarians and friends on a gluten free diet at the same time.

Cooking Collard Greens The Caribbean Way.

Cooking Collard Greens The Caribbean Way.

Collard Green or collards is not native to the Caribbean, so it’s not something we would refer to as being traditional.

Zesty Garlic Flavored Avocado Yogurt Dip.
