Rice Cooker Recipes: Coconut Lime Rice

affiliate link disclaimer

I purchased some hazelnut crusted salmon at Trader Joe’s this weekend in case I got lazy one night this week… well, that night came quickly. I wanted something else to make the dish really pop but didn’t know what to make.

So with a bit of searching in my pantry, and perusing Food Network, I was inspired by a meal I watched and tried to re-create it with what I had on hand. I was not disappointed! This coconut lime rice is not only easy to make, it’s so delicious, rich, and flavorful. And it paired perfectly with the salmon.

Plus, I could use the rice cooker to make it. That means one less pot on the stove or dish in the oven. Looking for a great rice maker? This one is my favorite!

Coconut Lime Rice and Beans

  • 2 cups brown jasmine rice
  • 1 14 ounce can coconut milk
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 15 ounce can kidney beans, drained
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
  • 3 tablespoons chopped chives
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime

Throw everything but the chives and lime juice into a rice cooker and flip the switch to cook… wait for switch to go to warm.

Fold in chives and season to taste with salt and pepper if desired. Squirt the juice of 1/2 a lime on top and stir.

Makes 8 servings, 7 WW points per serving (and sooo worth it!)

10 Minute Dinners Lemon Garlic Shrimp

While I love to cook and get enjoyment out of feeding my family delicious meals there are some nights when I just don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. So I’ve come up with a few 10 minute meals to turn to on those nights I’m just too tired to cook a lot.

Luckily I don’t have to compromise flavor or nutrition when I make these 10 minute meals. I just use simple pantry staples like Success® Rice and whatever else I might have on hand to create different variations of similar dishes.

Last night we were in need of a 10 minute meal and I turned to my freezer and pantry. And that’s where Garlic Lemon Shrimp over Rice was created.

I pulled out the Success® Rice I had purchased on my last trip to the grocery store, some onions, garlic, lemons, cooking sherry, cornstarch and frozen shrimp, and got to making dinner. 10 minutes later dinner was served!
