Coconut Rice With Peas And Carrots

It has been very exciting to me to explore the recipes and ingredients that are common here in Northern Tanzania. Coconut rice is a Tanzanian favorite. This recipe uses coconut cream and turmeric along with green peas and carrots. This dish uses only a few ingredients and takes no more than 45 minutes from start to EAT! Just put the rice and veggies and spices in a pot, sauté a bit then add the coconut cream and water. Simmer until done. Simple but satisfying flavors I’m loving. The left overs taste great too. I even used leftovers to make an amazing soup.
