Author Notes

This rice recipe is a simple dish that goes great with fish, chicken or pork. I casually nickname it "aromatherapy rice" because of its fragrant scent. It combines fresh herbs with the richness of coconut. I usually make this with cilantro, but its great with fresh basil, parsley or mint in any combination. —Chrissie Graboski

In This Recipe
  1. Make your rice. Add 1 cup rice to a sauce pan and add 2 cups water with a pinch of salt. Bring rice to a boil, cover with a lid, reduce to minimum and cook rice for 20 minutes or until fluffy.
  2. In the meantime, make the green sauce. Add everything in a blender and blend it until well combined. You'll have a bright green liquid. When the rice is done, add the green sauce from the blender right into your rice pot. Stir well. Serve hot.
