Great with curry recipes or as a side dish


2 cups Water
2 cups Apple Juice
1 cup Coconut, shredded, unsweetened
2 cups Basmati Rice, brown

Place the water, apple juice, and unsweetened shredded coconut in a glass pot (or other type, if you don't have glass) on the stove top and bring to a boil. 

We prefer to use unsweetened shredded coconut because refined sugar is added to the sweetened variety.  Unsweetened shredded coconut should be available in health food stores.  If you use sweetened coconut, this rice dish may be too sweet for some people's taste.  If you find this to be the case, the next time you prepare this recipe, substitute one cup of apple juice with another cup of water.

When the water and apple juice begins to boil, add the brown basmati rice, cover the pot, and lower the heat to simmer.  When all the liquid has been absorbed, the coconut basmati rice is done.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-16)
