“Soooo good! I made a few adjustments to Paula's recipe - she uses full fat coconut milk, but the light works great imo. She also sautes the rice in 1 tbs of olive oil initially, but I skip it to save time and calories. I also found that I had to add a little water to mine, so I use closer to 1 cup of water. Try these with my Imitation Crab Cakes and corn relish! My hubby loved this rice dish :)”
