Fig Leaf Coconut Rice

Fig Leaf Coconut Rice

This coconut rice is special thanks to a tip Claudia Schwartz (the lovely, charming proprietress of San Francisco's Bell'occhio) gave me. Simmering the rice grains with a single fig leaf gives the rice a wonderful, unexpected flavor and fragrance. Serve topped with toasted pepitas, dried figs, scallions, and pan-fried tofu.

Green Curry Porridge

A boisterous green curry porridge made with toasted brown rice, a spicy herb-packed green coconut broth, all punctuated with winter squash and lots of green onions.

A deeply dark and impossibly decadent coconut chocolate pudding recipe. Creamy coconut milk base infused it with a whisper of warming spices.
