Yum!!!rosemary carrot ricerosemary carrot rice

This recipe is my late grandmother favorite. She usually made it when things were tight time wise and money wise. Although I don’t care for carrots, I always enjoyed this fragrant rice. It’s also quite pretty for a simple dish.

She used to have this large raised garden in her backyard. Nothing can smell better than the herbs and flower fragrances mingle together in a hot Summer night! Add the salty smell of the ocean and you have a wonderful sensorial paradise!

Grandma also had palm trees and coconut trees all over the property amongst other ones.  That means coconut milk was a big part of our meals. Coconut milk in our morning coffee, coconut milk in the polenta for lunch or the black bean puree, and coconut milk in our rice dishes.

The odd thing?

You always crave it and never get tired of it. Some part of the country won’t consider you a good cook if you don’t know how to incorporate coconut milk properly in your meals.  Some say it brings out the best part of all the herbs and spices we use. You know when it’s missing in a recipe!
