How to make Healthy Apricot and Coconut Rice

  1. Rinse the rice a few times then add to a pan with the water. Bring to the boil, then turn down to simmer.
  2. Add in the tomatoes, coconut and garlic, leaving to simmer for a few minutes. Part cover with a lid and continue to simmer for 40-45 minutes. You may want to stir it every now and again.
  3. After about 25-30 minutes (when there is still a bit of water left), add in the celery and broccoli.
  4. In the last 5 minutes when the water has pretty much absorbed, stir in the apricots.
  5. Turn off the heat, and mix again well before dishing up.
