This Cilantro Lime Vegetables with Coconut Rice is a simple and healthy meal. Fresh, flavourful, and the cilantro dressing is absolutely delicious.
Start by boiling 2 cups of water with 1 cup of coconut milk in a pot. Once it’s boiled, stir in your rice and let simmer for 50-55 minutes.
In a sauce pan, heat your avocado oil and toss in your garlic and chopped onion. Let the onion sweat for 2-3 minutes. Place your chopped vegetables in the pan and fry for 8-10 minutes. Stir frequently.
In a small bowl, mix together your dressing ingredients and stir with a fork or shake in a sealed jar/container until ingredients are well blended.
Once the rice is cooked, it’s time to plate your dish. Start by scooping the rice into a bowl. Next add your cooked vegetables and dressing. Garnish with freshly squeezed lime and chopped green onion, if desired.
