Butternut Coconut Rice

So, I haven’t posted a recipe for a while, but I made this one from Appetite for Reduction and it is amazing so I thought I’d share! 

Serves 6 as a side dish


1 cup brown or wild rice

2 cups water

2 pounds butternut squash

1 cup sliced white onion

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger (I just sliced mine finely)

3 cloves garlic minced

1 teaspoon lime zest

1/4 teaspoon chilli flakes

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup light coconut milk

1 tablespoon lime juice


1. Cook the rice. Mine took about an hour!

2. You can either roast the butternut squash in cubes at 200’c, or microwave until well cooked. You want it so that you can mash it! 

3. Mash up the butternut squash.

4. Sauté the onion in a saucepan for about 5 minutes, then add the ginger, garlic, lime zest, chilli flakes and salt, and sauté for another 2-3 minutes 

5. Add the mashed butternut squash, coconut milk and rice to the mixture and stir. If the mix seems dry, add some veggie stock or water. 

6. Add the lime juice.

7. Enjoy! ^_^
