Christmas Rice Recipe - One Pot Flourish Coconut Rice



I'm giving you a special present this year: my recipe for Christmas coconut rice! Originally a family favorite recipe, this meal has become my catering business's most requested Holiday dish. Every year around this time I prepare several trays of my coconut rice for my family, friends, church, and clients. This FREE recipe is highlighted in my up-and-coming cookbook, which will be available for purchase in the New Year. 

Reserve a spot on your holiday table for Flourish coconut rice! Regular coconut rice tends to be plain with a light taste of coconut milk. My recipe is bursting with incredible flavor and vibrant holiday colors. It is a one-pot recipe, which makes it easy to prepare and clean up, so you can spend more time enjoying the holidays with loved ones. 

Most likely the best coconut rice you ever tasted! This is far from your basic coconut rice. For example, coconut cream, coconut oil, coconut flakes, and coconut essence is used to infuse each rice grain with incredible coconut flavor. Broth is used instead of water to cook the rice. It is decadently displayed with an assortment of vibrant and colorful red and green bell peppers sautéed in aromatic spices such as curry, thyme, white pepper, and ginger. I doubt that you will ever come across such an incredible coconut rice dish.
