Hello & Happy Tuesday!!






I’ll be honest, I’m not a HUGE grain person.. 


I eat quinoa sometimes, I love Cous Cous when I have the time and ingredients to make it, but I rarely whip up rice.. 



Unless it’s Coconut rice!








This dish was inspired by a craving for coconut rice, but something more on the sweeter side and with color.. bright pink to be exact lol.





If you’re looking for a sweeter rice that packs healthy fats and packs lots of color.. 


You’ll love this Pineapple Coconut Rice infused with Pink Dragonfruit!

Can be used in spring rolls or served with vegan shrimp
