Nourishing Rice

Are you still cooking rice in water?  A great way to make it more nourishing is to cook your rice in bone broth and coconut milk!  I try to get bone broth in everyday and I want my family to eat it too but guess what? They don’t like drinking it straight like me (go figure). So I make this rice multiple times a week and I know they are getting some.  I use a rice cooker but if you make rice on the stove top just adjust liquid level accordingly depending on how much you normally use.

I put all of these ingredients into my rice cooker, push the button and magically I get rice in about 30-45 min where it sits on ‘warm’ until it is time to eat. Couldn’t be an easier more nourishing side dish!

Really good with the amazing sauce and kale chips and whatever meat or fish you want to make that night. I sometimes freeze the leftovers for use in a pinch.  Can be used the next day in a stir fry.
