Coconut Rice Stir Fry

Hey guys! It’s Monday evening here. The baby just went to bed for the night and I gave the older kids permission to stay up a little while to play Minecraft. I’m parked on the couch with my laptop, feeling pretty good after a healthy dinner. I whipped up a tasty coconut rice stir fry with the left over steak from our beach trip.

After four days at the beach with 30 other Hutchinsons, we had a decent amount of left-overs. I was the lucky one with an empty cooler so I got to bring home all the steak, crab, fish and other food deliciousness. I’m hoping to find the time to make a bunch of great meals with it all. The kitchen at the beach house was amazing. I miss those beautiful granite counter-tops and sexy gas stove. What can I say… I’m a sucker for a beautiful kitchen!317701_249268261783057_931938855_n

Before I headed to the coast the marketing team from Epicurex contacted me, asking if I would like to sample their Cocozia Coconut Water on Bread & With It. My answer was… yes, of course! One of the perks to having a food blog is being able to try out free stuff and give my honest opinion because… money isn’t exchanged. So, what did I think? The certified healthy benefits to this brand over other coconut water brands is outstanding.

When put to the test in coconut rice stir fry it passed with flying colors. Using coconut water instead of water when cooking up the rice made it absolutely divine. There is a natural sweetness to coconut water that subtly made this dish. I will be making variations of this dish in the future because it’s really that good! I’m looking forward to using the rest of my coconut water to make some blended drinks too!

  1. loving the look of this stir fry.. definitely looks delicious. awesome idea to use coconut water to make the rice, i usually use coconut milk or cream and i find the rice sometimes turns out gluggy. definitely will be trying your version!
