Coconut Milk Rice

I love coconut milk. I think it is one of the tastiest things you can add to a meal. This past week I was day dreaming about coconut milk (yes, that’s real, I day dream about food) and thought, “I should start using it to make rice for Thai dishes!” It’s such an easy thing to do, but truly elevates an at home meal.

One of my personal favorite things about coconut milk: it’s dairy free. Dairy and I don’t always see eye to eye, and I have a number of friends who either they or their children are the same way, so it’s always nice to have some creamy, dairy free alternatives.

Curry Meatballs with Coconut Milk

In the spirit of “the more coconut milk, the better”, I made a coconut milk curry sauce for Thai curry meatballs. Y’all, this dish was freaking good. I’m looking at these photos and wishing I still had leftovers. This dish is savory, fresh, and filling. And overall, fairly healthy. I highly recommend you make it asap.
