It is so nice to be able to say Springtime in a post and recipe……….Springtime Asparagus Pasta………has a nice ring to it doesn’t it?
Without further ado ………..I need to say how proud I am of my husband Tim for all the beautiful pictures you see here on What the “Forks” for Dinner?. He has taken our pictures from ok to fabulous! We are both learning from this experience, but Tim is really turning into a wonderful photographer. I am amazed by him everyday………so “Thank You” Honey for helping make this dream a reality…………Besides isn’t he cute??? (see below)
Now this is a really quick go with recipe. Coconut Cilantro Lime Rice.I made this recipe to go with the Date Night Dinner recipe Spicy Honey Chicken. When having a spicy meal it’s always nice to have something creamy as a balance.
Rinse rice. Set aside. Place coconut milk, salt and oil in a 2 qt. saucepan and bring to a boil. Add rinsed rice and stir. Cover and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer 25 -30 minutes or until rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed. You may need to add 1/4 to 1/3 cup of water if the liquid is absorbed before the rice is cooked.Stir in garlic, cilantro and green onions. Serve
You can use regular rice instead of brown.

I have started using coconut milk when making rice instead of water when I want to have that rich creamy texture.
