The beauty of this Coconut Rice Bowl is that you can adapt it to seasonal veggies and use whatever protein you prefer!  Here we are using tofu as our protein along with asparagus and peas in honor of Springtime.  The rice is rich and delicious, cooked in coconut milk with a little curry powder giving it gorgeous color and warm flavor undertones without being overpowering, and while the rice cooks, the tofu and veggies are prepped, seared, and sautéed.

Finishing this dish with fresh mint, cilantro, lime, and the toasted coconut flakes makes the real magic in this dish!  Bright herby toasty amazing flavor and texture that will completely elevate your meal.  You really don’t want to leave these out!
