SSL: Coconut, July 27

27 Jul

Coconut Rice

Inspiration comes to me in different ways. Sometimes it’s a whole meal that I’m after, other times it’s just one ingredient that I crave and want to use a bunch of different ways. Coconut has been on my mind lately. I love cracking open a baby coconut, drinking the water, and scooping out the soft interior. It’s one of those time-consuming and rewarding food activities that I love.

Here are some coconut possibilities for today’s Saturday Short List:

David Lebovitz’s shows us how to prepare fresh coconuts and make avocado coconut ice cream. That ice cream looks phenomenal. And it’s avocado, so it’s good for you.

My coconut rice recipe (pictured above) is light and nutty, perfect for summer.

Coconut bread from smitten kitchen.

Lemongrass and coconut curry with summer veggies on Bon Appetit.

Coconut water kefir on Cultures for Health. I haven’t ventured into kefir water because I’ve been too busy with kombucha, but this looks like a yummy recipe for a healthy drink.

21 Ways to Use a Can of Coconut Milk on Babble. Love this.

What’s your favorite way to use coconut?

Happy Saturday!

    Hmmm coconut rice sounds delicious! Lately I’ve been baking with coconut oil for an added boost of coconut flavor!

    If I could find a way to work coconut into every meal I eat I totally would. Great post!
