Coconut Rice from Aim True

by Kathryn Budig


As promised on the Festival Cookies with Liz Moody episode of Free Cookies, I give you: COCONUT RICE! A few updates and pieces of advice on this recipe (found on page 186 of Aim True): You can use light or full fat coconut milk in this recipe. Obviously full fat is super creamy and luxurious, but the light still has a lovely flavor if you want something less dense. You can also swap out broth for the coconut water, and I HIGHLY recommend using Anson Mills Carolina Gold Rice. Store these grains of gold in the freezer until you use them!

by Kathryn Budig




Feisty Calabrian Pasta with Perky Kumquats

Serves 2 hungry people or 4 modestly hungry




2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (plus extra for finishing)

1 tablespoon crushed Calabrian chili in oil*

6 kumquats, thinly sliced

2-3 cloves garlic, slivered

1/4 sweet onion, diced

1/2 bunch Dino kale, thinly cut

1 Meyer lemon, zested

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1 pacakage pasta of choice

Handful fresh chives, chopped

Sea salt, finishing salt and fresh black pepper to taste


Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Salt to taste like the sea. Cook pasta al dente and reserve 1/4 cup pasta water.


Warm olive oil over medium heat and sauté onion for 5-7 minutes or until soft. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in Calabrian chilies, kumquats and garlic for another 2-3 minutes. Toss in kale and season with more salt and lemon zest. Stir well and let kale wilt for roughly 3 minutes. Add in cheese, reserved pasta water and pasta. Stir well so that the sauce coats all the noodles evenly. Turn off the heat after 1-2 minutes and transfer to dining bowls. Top with fresh chives, more parm, a few slivers of raw kumquat, quick glug of olive oil and finishing salt and pepper. Bon Appetito!


*you can always add another tablespoon if you really wanna pack the heat!
