Coconut Almond Rice

Coconut Almond Rice
  • Yield: 8 Servings
  • Prep Time: 10 Mins.
  • Cook Time: 20 Mins.


  • 13.5 ounces light coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cup long grain white rice
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Sliced Almonds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 ounces snow peas, strings removed, cut into thin strips


  1. Combine coconut milk with enough water to yield 3-cups of liquid. Place liquid into a medium saucepan with salt and bring to a boil. Stir in rice, reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed.
  2. Meanwhile, toast coconut in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until golden, 3 to 5 minutes; set aside. Toast almonds following same directions as for coconut.
  3. Heat oil in the skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add snow pea strips and sauté until crisp tender, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir snow peas, almonds and coconut into rice using a fork. Serve immediately.
