It’s a brand new year, and we’re kicking off a new feature at Tranquil Space: Meatless Mondays! Whether you’re vegetarian, flexatarian, or just looking to lighten up your meat consumption, we’ll have ideas for you to try every Monday.

This week we found a delicious coconut rice recipe from the savvy chefs at VegWeb.

1 cup brown rice
3-4 white mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups vegetable broth (or 1 cup broth, 1 cup water)
1/2-1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
5 chives, snipped
salt and pepper, to taste
handful shredded coconut, toasted

1. Saute rice and mushrooms in oil until rice begins to get toasted and darker brown. Add the broth/water (It will steam up), cover (with air vent), and turn to low.
2. Cook rice according to package directions, until liquid is gone, and rice is tender.
3. Once rice is done, add the coconut milk and chives, and season to taste. Top with toasted coconut.

Preparation Time:
45 minutes-1 hour
