We are big into Silk around our house. We switched to almond milk a few years ago and have been Silk fans ever since, so when I had the chance to partner with them on a dinner party idea using their Coconutmilk, I jumped at the chance. It’s delicious! Our favorite is the Silk Unsweetneed Coconutmilk. We use it in smoothies and popsicles, but it’s a great addition to savory dishes too. This Coconut Ginger Rice is a perfect example.
As a hostess, I appreciate when my meals are easy to prepare, and I don’t have to fuss over who is eating what. That’s what so great about any sort of “build-your-own” bar–everyone can choose what they want! This meal is great for almost any diet–vegetarian or vegan friends can enjoy the rice, veggies, fruit, and sauce and skip the sausage. Paleo friends can eat the meat, veggies, fruit, and sauce. Gluten free friends can rest easily knowing they won’t be getting anything they shouldn’t be. See? Simple. Easy. Delicious.
We used this great rice as the base for island rice bowls. It’s a little bit creamy, and the savory-sweet coconut and ginger flavor is fabulous without being overpowering. It wasn’t too spicy for either of my picky toddlers (Sophie even had two bowls). Topped with chicken sausage (we love mango or apple), stir-fried veggies, fresh pineapple, toasted coconut, and a great pineapple-ginger teriyaki sauce…oh my. Top the meal off with some (kid-friendly) sparkling juice and this meal is HEAVEN.
