BROWN RICE IN COCONUT MILK WITH PINE NUTS AND GARLIC

Brown rice is my favourite grain.  It goes with everything and it make you feel satisfied and nourished. It's a whole grain and therefore still has all the nutrients within it, whereas white rice is devoid of nutrients and just fills one up for a short period of time but brown rice has staying power.
Its very high in fibre which helps many things including helping to keep blood sugar levels under control.  Its also rich in calcium, magnesium and potassium.



1 cup brown rice soaked overnight
1 can coconut milk
2 cloves garlic crushed and chopped
2 tablespoons pine nuts
chopped fresh herbs of your choice

Drain and rinse the rice and place in a medium pan. Add the coconut milk, you will need to add another 1/2 cup of water to it.  Bring to boil and simmer with lid on, on a low heat for 30 minutes. While the rice is cooking you can saute the garlic and pine nuts in a teaspoon of butter until the edges are slightly brown. Set aside. Check the rice after 30 minutes.  Its done when all the liquid is evaporated and usually that's between 30 and 40 minutes.  When its done add the garlic, pine nuts and fresh herbs. Serve with main course of your choice.
