Coconut fried rice YUM

Disclaimer: This is not a low-fat dish. But it is delicious.

Coconut fried rice

  • Leftover rice
  • Coconut oil
  • Dessicated (dried) coconut flakes or powder
  • Milk (I used almond milk to make this vegan)
  • Sugar

Heat oil in pan. Add leftover rice and dried coconut flakes. Mix and stir and cook. When the mixture is hot, add some milk. Sprinkle sugar on top to taste. Stir until hot; you'll know when it's done when the dried coconut doesn't taste dry. Serve hot.

I didn't measure quantities, but I suspect that this recipe is tolerant of a lot of variety.

The biggest down side is that the pan ends up sticky. My usual treatment for this in a savory dish is to deglaze the pan with red wine, but that's obviously a non-starter here. I suspect that a small amount of white wine added to the pan at the end of cooking would be worthwhile.
