creamy yellow rice with bok choy and spinach in a pan on a dish towel

The creamiest coconut milk turmeric rice, made with warming anti-inflammatory spices and healthy fats! My new favorite side dish. Just wow- I have no way of explaining how delicious (and easy!) this rice is.

There’s no doubt that a diet with lots of anti-inflammatory aspects is beneficial to our health. Inflammation shows up in SO many different ways- from painful periods, to chronic illness, digestive issues, acne, etc. The list goes on!

Turmeric is spice known for its anti-inflammatory properties, when consumed in combination with black pepper. It also adds a really delicious flavor to this creamy rice!

This rice also contains healthy fats from olive oil and coconut milk. Yes, the fats found in coconut are healthy fats and not to be feared! The coconut milk gives this rice the most amazing creamy texture- with a subtle coconut flavor.

This rice dish is reminiscent of a curry dish, but a little more subtle on the flavors (and super easy to make).

It’s packed with green goodness, too- using baby bok choy and baby spinach. Tons of vitamins and minerals in this dish!

This make’s for the most amazing meal prep side dish, or simple dinner side. I love this with some salmon, shrimp, or tofu. SO good!

Important Tips:

  • It’s important to follow the instructions on the package for the specific rice that you use. I replaced the usual water that I would cook rice in with vegetable broth in this recipe; it adds an extra delicious flavor and I don’t recommend skipping it for water!
  • I have only tried this with white Jasmine rice, and I can’t say for sure what results you will get when using a different rice
  • Be sure to use a can of full fat coconut milk, not light or from the carton

I’ve been wanting to put this together as a simple recipe for you guys for some time now. I am so excited to get this one on the blog, and I can’t wait to hear what you think!

As a little reminder, leaving a rating and comment below if you make this dish is incredibly helpful to me, and I so appreciate it 🙂 As well as all of your love on Instagram! Thank you all so much. xoxo

Anti-Inflammatory Creamy Coconut Rice

  • Author: Mia Zarlengo
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 46 servings 1x
  • Category: Sides, Dinner


Golden creamy coconut rice, made with healthy fats and warming spices!


  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked white jasmine rice*
  • 2 1/4 cup low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup shallot, finely diced 
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced 
  • 2 cups roughly chopped baby bok choy (for me, this was 1 bunch)
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 (14 oz) can full fat coconut milk (both watery and creamy parts)
  • 23 green onions, diced


  1. Start by cooking the rice. Stir the rice with the vegetable broth in a pot and cook according to directions on the box . (For mine, I had to bring to a boil then cover and simmer for 15 minutes. I then removed from heat and allows to steam for an additional 10 minutes). 
  2. Prepare the other ingredients.
  3. Heat a large pan with high sides over medium heat.
  4. Pour in the olive oil, then slightly reduce heat and stir in the shallot and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds (be careful not to burn), then stir in bok choy, spinach, and all of the seasonings. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  5. Reduce heat and pour in coconut milk (use the entire can- including the water). Stir and allow to simmer with the vegetables for 5 minutes. Turn off heat, and stir in rice once it is done cooking.
  6. Stir in green onion and serve!


* I have not tried this with any other type of rice. Liquids may need to be adjusted for different types of rice.

Did you make this recipe? Be sure to tag @gatherednutrition on INstagram so I can see what you made! Leaving a rating and review on the site is a huge help too!

  1. Goldy says:

    Saw this on your instagram page and it just looked delicious! Just made it with a side of tofu – it smells so good and tastes soo good! Thank you!

  2. Jackie says:

    I just made this for my roommates and I and will definitely be making it again! We all loved how creamy, flavorful, and simple it was. We also added some tofu and it was delicious 🙂

  3. Lia says:

    I just made this and holy crap it was amazing!! My family doesn’t like garlic or onions, so I was a little worried it would be pretty bland with no other real flavour besides coconut but it was still super good!! I also used brown rice and it was very good. Just followed the instructions on the rice package and didn’t have to change anything else in the recipe. I definitely recommend you try this ????????

  4. Molly Nordlin says:

    Just made this and it was fantastic. I used some frozen brown rice which made it extra quick. I also roasted some cauliflower to top off the rice. Next time I might add some spicy to it. This is a very soothing comfort food dinner.

  5. Kelly says:

    This recipe was delicious! I added a healthy spoonful of calabrian chili paste for a hint of heat- it was perfect!

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Oh my goshhhh I need to do that!! That sounds so amazing. So happy you enjoyed it 🙂

      • McKenna says:

        eating this right now! super good. i added some curry spice as well as some paprika, siracha, and sweet chilli sauce to get rid of the bitterness of the spices. really great recipe!

  6. Amanda A says:

    Just made this! Added peas and roasted cauliflower…amazing! Creamy and filling.

  7. Katie says:

    I meal prepped this for the week and it was phenomenal. I made it with just a very basic seasoned chicken. It reheats really well and I felt great all week. I will absolutely be making this again.

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Love hearing this Katie!! Nothing better than knowing the food you’re eating is making you feel your best 🙂 Thank you so much!

  8. Gina says:

    I love this recipe! So good and so easy. Made it with salmon and love the combo. Thanks Mia!!!

  9. Amanda says:

    This recipe is incredible and so easy to make. I used brown jasmine rice and it turned out wonderfully. Thank you for another fantastic recipe, Mia!

  10. Amber says:

    So I made this and was totally unsure because turmeric can be a hit or miss for me taste-wise but WOW. Delicious! Even my husband and son, who can be picky eaters, loved it! Will definitely make again. 🙂

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      I totally agree with this about turmeric! Something about it in this recipe adds the perfect flavor- and love the benefits of it 🙂 Thank you so much Amber! So happy your family loved it!!

  11. Abby Johnson says:

    Just made this with some honey sesame chicken and it blew my MIND! Everyone who tried it loved it too!!

  12. Ida says:

    I made this creamy rice and used rainbow chard and dinosaur kale instead for the greens, because that’s what came in my veggie box. It tastes amazing and my boyfriend loved it as well. Thank you for the recipe! xx

  13. Jordyn says:

    I was craving mac and cheese but opted for this because I happened to have some bok choy. While no cheese in this dish, the creaminess of the coconut satisfied my mac and cheese cravings and can’t wait for leftovers today!

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Ah this makes me so happy!! I am currently addicted to this recipe. So happy you’re loving it 🙂

  14. Phaid says:

    Really Good.
    I made the following changes: used coconut cream, added more shallots, added a little more tumeric, and a splash of lemon juice at the end. Served it with a spinach salad with avacado and tomatoes, with a homemade french dijon vinaigrette. It was delicous!

  15. Lianna says:

    my 2nd recipe of Mia’s and wow – it did not disappoint! Loved how flavorful and creamy this rice is. Leftovers taste just as great too. Will be making this quite often, thanks for the great recipe! Each one just gets better than the last!

  16. Jena says:

    I’ve been wanting to make this since you first posted on Instagram…and it did not disappoint! I used Banza chickpea rice instead of jasmine rice and it was delicious. The creamy coconut makes it super satisfying and I loved getting all those greens 🙂

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      I need to try this with the chickpea rice- that’s genius! So glad you loved it Jena thank you so much! xoxo

  17. Alana says:

    LOVED this dish! Even got a five star review from my boyfriend who can be skeptical of my “healthy recipes”. Tastes amazing. We ate it with chicken, but could have even had it plain.

  18. Liz says:

    I made your this recipe but subbed brown rice pasta for the rice. I added lime and scallions for serving and crispy tofu. This came out AMAZING – my whole family loved it! Will be added to our regular meal rotation

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Thank you so much Liz 🙂 All of your additions sound SO delicious! So happy the whole family enjoyed it! Stay healthy!

  19. Artemis says:

    My husband is allergic to coconut. Are there any other ingredients I could use instead of coconut that would give the dish that creaminess you are referring to?

  20. Keb says:

    This is a new staple for my household ! Mia has really outdone herself for quick and easy yet tasty and healthy.

  21. Emily says:

    My whole family LOVED this recipe. Amazing comfort food. So delicious and easy to make. I didn’t have bok
    choy this time around am excited to try it with the bok choy next time (which will probably be very soon because we loved it so much).

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Yay! Thanks Emily! 🙂 My family had it last night with green cabbage instead of bok choy and it turned out amazing!!

  22. Lydia says:

    This has become a staple in my house! The first recipe I’ve ever made where my sister asked for it afterward and where my fiancé craves it once a week. This recipe is incredibly tasty —so creamy and warming. The turmeric adds great flavor and is healing (always a plus). I add a little more turmeric and pepper for taste with mine. Run, don’t walk and try this recipe!

  23. Kianna says:

    I made a double batch of this with chicken stock since that’s what I had on hand and it was definitely one of the best things I have ever tasted. I ate it for leftovers everyday afterwards even just by itself… it’s that good. So creamy and satisfying.

  24. Amanda says:

    This is such a comforting, delicious dish! I subbed a sweet onion for the shallot and used extra bok choy, but otherwise made it as is and I’m obsessed. It makes a nice big batch that is perfect for meal prepping. It’s particularly tasty alongside the orange cashew tofu!

  25. Lisa P. says:

    This was amazing! I added organic ground chicken to it for some protein and it was super easy and quick to make. I didn’t have bok choy on hand, but threw in some broccoli and greens and it was delicious and nutritious. Husband approved, too!

  26. Cassi says:

    This recipe was so easy, so filling, and so good!! I also love that it’s really versatile and can be adjusted for whatever you have on hand. The perfect dish to clean out whatever veggies you have in the fridge with 🙂

    The first time I made it, I did it with some thinly sliced chicken to eat as a curry-esque bowl meal and it was amazing! The second time was as a side dish with some salmon and it was just as good. Thanks for a great recipe!

  27. Andrea says:

    My boyfriend and I LOVED this. It’s mac and cheese level comfort food that actually makes you feel good. We made it for dinner with salmon, and ate the leftovers for breakfast with a fried egg. I added a dash of curry powder, which was good but not necessary. A new staple for sure!

  28. Kayla says:

    Easy to make, and I always add extra veggies easily/ swap for some if I don’t have the exact ingredients. Love these easy recipes!!

  29. Henni says:

    Absolute winner!
    I actually used already cooked leftover rice and sort of adapted the recipe a little bit but boy it was good!!

  30. Kim says:

    I love this recipe! It’s so simple and such a comfort food staple in our house now! I usually add mushrooms too.

  31. Emily says:

    So comforting!

    Just the right balance of nourishing and decadent.
    The only adds I made were crushed red pepper instead of black pepper and a squeeze of lime juice to finish it. Topped with gochujang shrimp for a full dinner.

  32. Victoria says:

    AMAZING!! So satisfying and filling! We make this at least once a week now!!

  33. Katie says:

    Seriously the best rice and on repeat now in my house! Fed it to my picky best friend and she even loved it. Also super easy and versatile, I’ve made some subs and even put less coconut milk in it, still comes out great!

  34. Jenn says:

    Made this on first day of quarantine, and now have made it multiple times! So flavorful! Thanks for sharing great recipes with us

  35. Sara says:

    YUM! I used frozen jasmine rice to save some time and it worked perfectly. So creamy and delicious. Served with chicken, but next time will try with shrimp!

  36. Caroline Kebbe says:

    I’ve been eyeing this recipe for a while and I’m so happy I finally made it! I also used brown rice because it’s what I had on hand and subbed Swiss chard for the bok choy because the market was out – still amazing! I added a pinch of chili flakes for a bit of heat but the recipe needs no adjustments. Thank you, Mia! Xx

  37. Samantha says:

    This creamy rice will definitely be a new favorite in my rotation! Subbed shredded brussel sprouts for bok choy and added chickpeas and it came out perfect!

  38. Kellen says:

    So creamy and hearty! I used brown rice since that is what I had on hand and it turned out perfectly!

  39. Haley says:

    Super creamy and delicious – served with chicken

  40. Emma says:

    This recipe is delicious and so easy to make! I used brown rice and kale instead of bok choy as they were what I had in my kitchen – everything came out great! This will definitely be a staple when I want something comforting but also healthy.

  41. Madeleine says:

    I couldn’t get my hands on baby bok choy, so the cooking time was probably about ~10minutes longer to get the stalk pieces tender, but SO WORTH THE WAIT. Creamy and flavorful, I had to stop myself from grabbing extra forkfuls as I put the leftovers away…

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Love that!! Thanks Madeline 🙂 Another good sub is green cabbage and has about the same cook time as the bok choy 🙂

  42. jess says:

    This is my new favorite recipe!!! I am not a huge rice eater.. but I am now! Wow. I made it with brown rice instead and it turned out really delicious. Thanks for this!

  43. Joanna M says:

    Absolutely love this rice! I’ve made it two weeks in a row already 🙂 it is so comforting and delicious, keeps well for leftovers, and is very versatile! Thank you for this healthy, tasty, easy recipe!

  44. Christina says:

    Made it with shrimp and it was amazing!

  45. Kara says:

    So delicious that you’ll want to eat the whole pan in one sitting! It’s so easy to make and filled with tons of nutrients!

  46. Alexandra says:

    Super easy, quick, satisfying weeknight dinner!! I subbed both the spinach and bok choy for other green veggies I had on hand (#quarantinelife) and added some shrimp on top for protein – so delicious, and even better as leftovers for lunch the next day! Will definitely be adding this to the list of staple recipes!

  47. Heather says:

    Made it with brown rice, broccoli, kale, spinach and a squeeze of lemon at the end. Delicious! Can’t wait to use the leftovers.

  48. Tori says:

    It tastes as good as it looks! So easy and I love switching out the veggies I use. I’ve tried asparagus and broccoli in place of bok choy and it turns out great! Definitely becoming a weekly staple for me!

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Ah thank you so much Tori! This is 100% a weekly staple for me as well! So glad you love it xo

  49. Ashley says:

    Just made this recipe for the first time, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! That being said, although this was pretty tasty, I did find it to be a bit too bland. Next time I will try increasing the amount of shallots, garlic, and spices.

  50. Katherine says:

    I LOVE this rice! I’ve been eating it for lunches this week with a scrambled egg or tofu. So simple but so satisfying!

  51. CC says:

    I have made this just about 20 times now. This dish is so flavorful and works as a side for anything. BUT… my favorite way to eat it is in the morning with a fried egg (who would have thought). 10/10

  52. Shannon says:

    This was one of my Mia meals this week and let me say, they never disappoint! The perfect wholesome side dish for any meal. I mistakenly grabbed long-grain white rice rather than jasmine at the store this weekend but it still turned out fabulous.

  53. Stephanie says:

    Thank you SO MUCH for this recipe! Holy cow, this is the most delicious, savory rice ever, especially considering all of the nutritious ingredients! It was hard for me to find canned coconut milk at the store, but I was able to get a pack of coconut cream and a carton of coconut milk – whisked the two together and it worked out great.

  54. madeline says:

    One of my absolute FAVORITES and is now a staple! I love to add extra veggies like broccoli and mushrooms!

  55. Robin Hudson says:

    I have been having some stomach issues and was looking for a mild rice recipe that would not cause pain or bloating. I made this recipe last week and WOW! This is the best rice dish I have not only ever made, but ever eaten as well! I will also be making this again tonight! I would give it 10 stars if I could! It is just that good!
    The recipe is easy to follow and it comes out exactly like pictured!

  56. maria says:

    LOVED this dish!!! Already sent the recipe to 3 friends! Made a few modifications.. used long grain brown rice, lite coconut milk, white onion and added celery & fresh ginger! Amazing! Thank you Mia and LOVE your blog xx

  57. karen cohen says:

    This recipe is excellent!!! I made with with brown rice and my entire family loved it! It kind of gives me risotto vibes in the best way! Thank you!

  58. Natalie says:

    SO good! I made this and served it with a side of lemon garlic tilapia. The perfect summer time feel good meal!

  59. Shannon says:

    Love this recipe!! I make it about every other week!!

  60. Alyse says:

    Per usual, Mia’s recipes are on point for delicious food that is also good for you! Love making all of her stuff, savory and sweet! Keep ‘me coming!

  61. Vasia says:

    So so good!! Yummy ????

  62. Kelly says:

    Mia does it again! So so good

  63. Judith says:

    Loved this recipe! Super quick, easy, and delicious! I added extra green veggies (broccoli/asparagus) and it was a great balanced meal. Had leftovers with morning eggs which worked perfectly as well.

  64. Niko says:

    LOVE this recipe! It’s super delicious. I usually cook tofu, cauliflower, and green pepper separately and then mix those in at the end. Really tasty and lasts for quite a few meals! This is quickly becoming a staple in my diet!

  65. Nikki says:

    This was the first recipe of Mia’s that I tried and I was instantly hooked. I CRAVE this creamy rice! It’s so satisfying and delicious without feeling guilty. Serves as a great side dish that definitely steals the show, and is great for breakfast the next day too!

  66. Gabby says:

    The BEST recipe I’ve ever had! I don’t know where to begin, its creamy but not mushy, the turmeric is just enough, I found out I love bok choy! I make this at least once a week!
    Thank you!!

  67. Claire says:

    This recipe was so delicious- we served it with scallops and this could not have been a better side. I’m not the biggest fan of turmeric so I was worried that the flavor would be too strong but it wasn’t- all of the flavors worked so well together it was amazing! Also, the grocery store didn’t have bok choy so we subbed chopped asparagus which worked 🙂

  68. gwynne says:

    Wow, this was SO delicious! I substituted turmeric for curry and cumin since I did not have turmeric on hand, and used brown jasmine rice. My rice had to cook a bit longer, but I paired it with lemon pepper salmon and it was excellent. Will become a household favorite!

  69. Sarah says:

    So dang delicious! Love how easy this was to make and it’s perfect for leftovers!

  70. Elaine says:

    What happens if i only have light coconut milk? 🙂
    Thanks for the recipe!!!

  71. Sydney says:

    Made this with some fish.. so delicious! We heated up next day for leftovers and was just as good!

  72. Hannah Pratt says:

    Definitely a staple! It’s food that makes you feel healthy after eating while still feeling full.

  73. Emily says:

    Omg this was amazing! So creamy, flavorful and delicious! Already can’t wait to make it again – definitely going to be a new staple! Even my boyfriend who “doesn’t like coconut” LOVED it! ????

  74. Natalie says:

    Another amazing recipe by Mia!! I couldn’t find bok choy so I used broccoli instead… AMAZING! Paired with salmon on the side. New fav dish.

  75. Kelsey H. says:

    LOVE THIS RECIPE. Simply delicious, with great flavor. I love eating this with grilled chicken & veggies.

  76. Carly says:

    Love this recipe! It’s perfect for meal peeps during the week. I usually just throw whatever veggies I have in it and it always turns out amazing. I’d never experimented with turmeric before and now I can’t get enough of it! Thank you Mia for always putting out amazing recipes!

  77. Lauren says:

    A weekly staple. I’ve subbed Right Rice, and any veggies I have on hand (white onion, greens), and it’s always delicious. Like others have noted, I add a bit more turmeric than the recipe calls for, as well as a little cayenne for heat. So, so comforting, flexible, and satisfying. Thank you for this recipe! It’s quickly become one of my favorites.

  78. Emma says:

    Just made this and it was delicious! My grocery store was out of Bok Choy and so I used collard greens instead. Still tasted great.

  79. Ana says:

    I’m obsessed! I couldn’t find green onions so I made it without them but still so incredible. Served with grilled salmon 🙂 I cannot wait to have the leftovers… and may or may not be serving myself seconds now.

  80. Kaila says:

    I’m obsessed with this recipe!! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made it and it tastes sooooo good and satisfying every time! I’ve made a lot of her recipes and they are all so delicious and easy to follow 🙂

  81. Whitney P says:

    This was SO good. I used whole grain brown rice & it turned out perfect. Also I threw in the zucchini scraps I’ve been holding on to for no good reason. 10/10 will keep this in my rotation.

  82. Erin says:

    This is soooo good! I’ve already made it twice this week for my family. I added some red chili flakes on mine and it was unbelievable!! Such a rewarding and easy recipe to follow. Will definitely be a new staple for me.

  83. Robyn says:

    The best rice I have ever had…

  84. Molly McHugo says:

    the BEST rice I’ve ever made, hands down. I can’t even count how many times I’ve made this for my meal prep. You can use it for anything but I love it with sautéed shrimp & a dash of coconut aminos!! the bok choy is an excellent addition as well!

  85. Savy says:

    This recipe is amazing! I added chick peas with the veggies and some honey sesame chicken on the side. Such a good meal!

  86. Rachel says:

    Simply Amazing!!! I crave it all the time. So creamy so healthy so delicious. Goes well with shrimp, or chicken, or sautéed veggies.

  87. Jeanne says:

    I can’t wait to make this… but, everything I read says that white jasmine rice is inflammatory. So, I’m curious how you include white jasmine rice in an anti-inflammatory recipe? Do you have a different opinion about white jasmine rice? Thank you!

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Food is really person to person! If something causes an inflammatory response in someone that’s different, but in general jasmine rice can definitely be part of a healthy diet and I tend to find that a fear of rice comes from diet culture!

  88. Regina says:

    I have made this recipe a few times and I love it. Sometimes I add roasted chicken on top to make it a full meal. Super simple and very good.

  89. Becca says:

    This rice LITERALLY goes well with anything. Took your advice and even used it in the AM with eggs! So delicious

  90. Allyson says:

    another one i make all the time, it’s so fueling and absolutely delicious<3! a must try for any lunch or dinner!!

  91. Gabby says:

    Delicious and easy to make. My husband and I had enough leftovers for a couple additional days and this was great because we could make different meals with minimal effort.

  92. Grace says:

    This recipe was part of my weekly meals for a long time! So beyond creamy and delicious, packed with healthy ingriedients and anti inflammatory properties UGH amazing. Love this and everything you make!! Thanks Mia 🙂

  93. Sarah says:


  94. Ali says:

    We love this recipe in our home! Makes for such yummy leftovers, too!

  95. Cara says:

    This dish is amazing!! So full of flavor and so nourishing. And just as great for leftovers. Love your site!

  96. Maddie says:

    Just finished eating this and had to leave an immediate review …yes it’s THAT GOOD! I used brown jasmine rice, kale instead of baby bok choy and added chickpeas for some extra staying power and it was 10/10. Creamy, sweet, savory, all the yummy notes. It makes lots of leftovers and I’m thrilled about it! Can’t wait to eat it again and again. If you’re on the fence about making this dish, just do it! Can’t believe I waited this long!

  97. Elissa says:

    oh my god, yum! this is absolutely amazing and I think it will quickly become a family fave!!

  98. Brooke says:

    Loved this recipe! It was a huge hit with my family, and everyone came back for seconds. This is kind of a strange mix, but I combined it with chicken, mushrooms, and peanut sauce lol. Anyways, I will definitely be making this again. Thank you!

  99. Madeleine says:

    This is one of me and my partner’s favorite recipes! We make it so often and every single time we can’t believe how good it is! This is such an easy recipe for a huge pay off! Can’t say enough good things about it.

  100. Jenn says:


  101. Kim Vaughn says:

    Made this with Farro since I was out of rice – it was amazing! Warm comfort food on a cold day! Very creative and different!

  102. Madeline says:

    This recipe is a staple in our home! I’ve made it at least a dozen times and it never gets old. It’s a great healthy comfort food and also saves well for leftovers. We usually pair it with salmon or chicken and a side salad.

  103. Lynn says:

    So easy, so healthy and so delicious!!! Will definitely be adding this to my rotation!!

  104. Anjelik says:

    My fiance and I love this dish! We added this to our weekly rotation and I do not regret it at all! Ive made it with both brown and white rice, and you cannot go wrong with either! It makes well more than enough leftovers for the week which makes lunches easy! It also reheats well! I even made this for my fiance’s family and it was a hit with them as well!

  105. Morgen says:

    Yum! Easy, and a great comfort food when sick! I didn’t have bok choy at home so I just added more spinach, but I like bok choy so will have to try it with the boy choy next time.

  106. Taylor says:

    One of my fav rice recipes. It is sooo yummy & comforting. My husband loves it too! ????

  107. SU says:

    Easy and delicious. I added a sprinkle of curry powder to bump up the flavour and it worked well. Useful website with tasty recipes!

  108. Cgw says:

    I love this rice dish ???? my family has added chicken, shrimp, and salmon but I find that I’m satisfied just eating this dish as a main course! It’s so nourishing and makes great leftovers. Love everything on this site!

  109. Miranda says:

    Could eat this all day every day. SO GOOD! I love it with tofu or salmon ????

  110. Leah says:

    All time favorite whenever I need something warm and comforting. Easy and adaptable. Don’t even need to look at the recipe now because I know it by heart ❤️

  114. Gabrielle says:

    This was the second recipe that I made of Mia’s and WOW!! This dish is so creamy and delicious! I’m beginning to feel like a chef since everything keeps coming out so good!

  115. Cindy says:

    Love this recipe! I always add a bunch of different seasonings (specifically lots of spicy seasonings) and other vegetables such as zucchini, mushrooms, bell pepper, carrots, broccoli, etc and it’s wonderful! I have made this a few times and am impressed every time.

    I have made this dish so many times and it is simply amazing every time! Thank you for this recipe!
    Tonight I’m adding shrimp sautéed in olive oil, onion and garlic. Looking forward to enjoying once again!

    I make this recipe quite often and it’s always a hit when I share my meal with others. Simple prep and easy to cook for such a flavorful dish. Sometime I throw an egg on top if I’m eating it for breakfast.

    Has anyone tried substituting the coconut milk for something lower in fat? Wondering if i can use skim milk, or greek yogurt instead?

    SOOO good!! This dish is perfectly creamy and delicious! I served it with chicken and it was a crowd pleaser! I will definitely be making this recipe again.

    I have had this recipe saved forever after seeing it on TikTok and I finally got to making it! I am not great in the kitchen but this was very straightforward and absolutely delicious! I added chicken to it and am already looking forward to eating the leftovers tomorrow.

    My extended family loves this meal! I even made it for Thanksgiving this year! The only thing I do different is I make everything in one pot- adding the rice and broth after the shallot and garlic have warmed a little. I went through and read some comments though so I may experiment a bit in the future. This is definitely an easy staple!

    This was so freaking delicious! I used spinach, asparagus and frozen peas because that’s the veggies I had and needed to use up! I added garam masala and cumin for a little kick and it was a delicious addition to add a little extra flare. My husband wanted a little more spicy and added a dash of Cajun to his bowl and LOVED it

    This was delicious! I didn’t have bok choy so I just used spinach. I mixed jasmine rice with farro since that’s all I had. I served it with curried chicken. Will definitely make this again!
