These green curry and coconut rice bowls make life so much easier! When you just want a bowl of comfort, you should turn to these. It comes together in less than 30 minutes and it’s so flavorful. I infused my rice with coconut cream so as it was cooking away in the rice cooker, the coconut aroma just filled my entire kitchen. I love coconut so much I could bathe in it, haha
With the weather cooling down, we really appreciated having this for dinner because it really warmed us right up and it has all the great flavors to go along with it! The green curry and coconut mixture was especially good to spoon over and mix with the coconut flavored rice.
This recipe would be perfect for meal prepping for the week. The coconut rice could be the base layer in your glass container then you could spoon the green curry and coconut mixture on top along with the veggies and chicken. Do this four times on repeat and you’ve got a delicious lunch every day!
