Thai Fried Sweet Brown Rice

This could be a fun dinner for Valentines! I have been reading the benefits of Curry and Turmeric. I have not cooked with them a whole lot. It was fun to try it something new. You should give it a try. We enjoyed it. I hope you do as well.


4 C sweet brown rice
2 C canned coconut milk
1 1/2 C water
4 T coconut oil
3 garlic cloves minced
1 whole onion chopped fine
3 T grated ginger root
1 lb of chicken tenders (cut in small pieces)
1 red bell pepper
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp turmeric *optional
2 eggs beaten
1 leek chopped fine

Directions: Serves about 4

1. Cook brown rice with the water and coconut milk. You may have to adjust your liquid according to how you cook it. I cooked mine in the pressure cooker. Allow enough time for the rice to cool, before it is added to the mixture. Otherwise the rice will absorb to much oil. I spread the rice on a cookie sheet to cool it faster.

2. Heat a wok or frying pan add 2 T of the oil. Then add ginger, garlic, and onion. Cook for about 3 minutes while stirring.

3. Then add the chicken and 2 T oil to the pan. Cook until it is all cooked. Then add the rice with
cook on high heat for 3 min.

4. Stir in the peppers, curry, *turmeric with salt to taste. Cook tossing it for 1 min. Stir in the eggs. and cook until the eggs are completely cooked. Garnish chopped leek. Enjoy!
