Rice Pilaf with Dates


This is a sweet and savory version of a rice pilaf. Instead of cooking the rice in regular old stock, I am using coconut milk. I got that idea from a recipe off the Sun Maid website. You will want to stir the coconut milk before measuring since it gets separated in the can.

What you will need

1 cup Jasmine Rice

1 cup Coconut Milk

1 cup Water

1 Medium size onion, chopped

4 Pitted dates, sliced

1/4 cup Roasted pistachios, roughly chopped

2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated

1/2 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon Olive oil
