Do you ever have those cravings that you just can't shake? The other night I had a hankering for Chinese Orange Chicken. You know, that thick battered, super sweet, clog your artery kind of dish?
Yup, that's what I was craving but then I thought of all the beach-bods here in Southern California and how they surely wouldn't be caught dead shoveling that sort of dish in their mouths came to mind. Light-bulb! What if I came up with a healthier, non-fried, non-artery clogging version?? Well, if you're thinking "OMG I HOPE SHE DID"... you're in luck! Scroll down and don't miss the recipe for Coconut Rice at the bottom!
Bring coconut milk to a boil, add rice and coconut, remove from heat and cover for 5-7 minutes until the liquid is absorbed. Add a bit of salt to taste.
In a shallow bowl, pile up coconut rice, place the veggies next and spoon your Orange Chicken mixture on top. Serve with chopsticks. Enjoy!
