When I created this recipe for coconut jasmine rice, I thought it would serve eight plus. After four of us had it for dinner and there was just about 2 cups remaining, I revised to say six! If you love rice, then this tandoori coconut jasmine rice can be an entire meal or just add a piece of grilled meat and you’re totally complete.

I did pan seared chicken breast filets with it, and, of course, this was a special meal for #teamblake and #thevoice. Our Monday night love affair with the amazing TV show! The recipe’s really simple, just gather your ingredients and have your microwave ready, and you’ll realize there’s not that much to it. I loved serving it from the cookie sheet~~with a large spoon and the pot of honey garlic orange marmalade sauce, everyone could help themselves!

Why not serve this coconut jasmine rice with some meatballs! I mean a fusion of Italian and Asian! Here’s the recipe.
