  • 1 1/3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt.
  • 2 cups rice. Jasmine or white (I mixed brown rice in, and it was fine!)
  • 1 cup chopped papaya or mango, chopped into bite-size pieces.
  • 1/2 cup pistachio nuts shelled.


  2. Combine chicken broth, coconut milk, salt, and rice in a medium size saucepan.
  3. Bring to boil. Lower heat, and simmer until the moisture has been absorbed.
  4. (cooking time will depend on type of rice. Jasmine will cook in about fifteen minutes, brown rice may take up to forty minutes.)
  5. Remove from heat, and let cool just enough to handle.
  6. Stir in papaya, and pistachios.
  7. Serve warm as a side dish with fish, chicken, or just about anything!
  8. (*also good served as a cool rice salad.)
