I feel like one of the easiest side dishes for me to prepare with grilled chicken, fish, or pretty much anything is rice. We definitely eat our fair share of rice around here. :) But plain brown rice can get really boring, really fast and I feel like this coconut rice with cilantro is a nice way to mix it up. And it's so easy, the hardest part is remembering about an hour before dinner is getting it started. (Unless you use Trader Joe's 15 minute basmati brown rice... that stuff is genius and always comes in handy when I've lost track of time).
This dish has just a little hint of sweet, it's really not much, but it might surprise you that this is a sugar-free side dish. It's a great compliment to a spicy, savory entree.
