New Recipe: Coconut & Bone Broth Rice

Despite what you may have heard, rice isn’t the devil. Sure, some people feel they can’t tolerate grains, but the vast majority of us should be including rice for B vitamins, fibre, resistant starch and microbial diversity. You can also boost the nutrient density with the addition of a good quality coconut oil, for blood sugar control and bone broth, for gut health (amongst many other benefits). You get bonus points for preparing this as resistant starch. We have this weekly with my butter chicken, beef stroganoff or green chicken curry. Enjoy.

Coconut & Bone Broth Rice

Ingredients (Serves 2-4)

  • 1 cup basmati rice, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons cold-pressed extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1½ cups bone broth
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Add coconut oil to a small pot over medium heat followed by rice and stir to coat. Carefully, add bone broth, season with salt and bring to a boil before reducing to a simmer. Cook for 12 minutes or until rice has absorbed all the broth. Place in a container and store overnight to cool and become resistant starch.
