Coconut Rice

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 lime, juiced

Coconut Tofu Skewers

  • 1 block extra firm tofu, patted dry and cubed
  • cup full-fat coconut milk
  • ¾ cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • tsp powdered ginger
  • tsp garlic powder

Avocado Mango Salsa

  • 1 large avocado, cubed
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 large mango, cubed
  • 1 small red bell pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 shallot, minced


Coconut Rice

  • In a pot add the coconut oil and melt. Once melted add the rice and stir to combine. Allow the rice to brown slightly over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Once browned, add the coconut milk, water, ginger and garlic. Stir to combine, cover, and allow to simmer for 30 minutes until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. Squeeze over fresh lime juice.

Coconut Tofu

  • While the rice is cooking, preheat the oven to 400°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • To a medium bowl add the remainder of the coconut milk, about ⅓ cup. To another medium bowl add the shredded coconut, ginger, and garlic. Stir to combine.
  • Pat the tofu dry and cut into cubes. Place the cubes into the coconut milk and gently toss to coat. Taking 1 tofu cube at a time, allow the excess coconut milk to run off and then place in the spiced shredded coconut and coat. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Continue with the remaining tofu.
  • Bake the tofu for 30 minutes until the coconut is golden brown.

Mango Salsa

  • To a bowl, add the cubed avocado and squeeze with lime juice. Gently toss to coat. Add the remaining mango salsa ingredients and gently combine.
  • To serve, place coconut rice in a bowl and top with coconut tofu and mango avocado salsa. Squeeze with more fresh lime juice if desired.
