Spice up your next meal with this Coconut and Herb Rice Salad from Steph at Friendly Little Kitchen. Using the Coco Quench to cook the rice adds a delicious and creamy texture and is the perfect base to add herbs and other flavours to.

We promise this dish will bring a flavour sensation to your plate that will leave you satisfied and very content. You’ll never go back to plane old rice again 😛

1 cup basmati rice
1 1/2 cups Pureharvest Coco Quench,
1/2 fennel,
thinly sliced
1/4 cup toasted almonds,
2 Tbsp barberries
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander seed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 handful fresh mint, coriander and parsley,
roughly chopped
1 big handful of rocket, roughly chopped
A few glugs of olive oil
Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

To cook the rice, place rice and Coco quench in a small saucepan with the lid on, bring to the boil then lower to a simmer for 15 minutes.

To caramelise the fennel, place in a fry pan on medium heat with oil of choice (I use coconut oil) and stir occasionally until it begins to brown at the edges (about 5 minutes).

Cover the pan and leave for about 10 minutes or until the fennel is nice and soft.

Prepare the rest of your ingredients and toss everything together in a large serving bowl.
