postheadericon Coconut Get Your Chef On!

I am so excited to be participating in the Coconut Get Your Chef On challenge!  A big thanks to Julie and Jen for letting me be involved.




My recipe is a little bit out of the ordinary.  I love coconut, but I also love my veggies, so I came up with the ultimate side dish...

COCONUT BEANS

1 lb. sugar snap beans
1 TBLS coconut oil
1/4 c shredded, unsweetened coconut
salt, to taste



First, wash and clean your beans, snipping the ends as needed.


Next, melt the coconut oil in a saute pan.  If you don't have coconut oil, please feel free to use butter as a tasty alternative.  When the oil is hot, add the beans and begin to saute, stirring frequently.


While the beans are heating, place the coconut in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat on High in the microwave for 90 seconds, until toasted.  When the beans are heated through, toss the coconut into the pan, until incorporated throughout the beans.  Salt to taste.

This could not be easier!  It is also a great way to get kids to eat their vegetables.  Veggies with coconut?  Yes please!


I hope you enjoy this simple and unusual way to incorporate coconut into your diet.




Until Next Time,

Sara
