Coconut Rice Instructions:

Sauce Instructions:

  1. Blend all ingredients together until smooth, pour over coconut rice.
  2. Serve just like this, or add cubed tofu, or the protein of your choice (cooked shrimp, rotisserie chicken, chunks of beef, etc.)


This is a meal I like to eat at home, by myself or with a loved one. It makes me sweat… a lot. But, it’s just so tasty. I wouldn’t want to be in public eating it. LOL


* Omit the jalapeños to make it mild, and just as good!
