DIRECTIONS

For the Rice:

  1. Add the cauliflower, in 2 batches to a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower resembles rice.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the Thai red curry paste, soy sauce, honey and chili paste.
  3. Heat a large, high-sided skillet over medium heat and add the oil. Add the cauliflower and bell pepper. Cook for 2 more minutes. Stir in the curry/soy/honey/chili mixture. Cook until the cauliflower is tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat, then add the basil, peach (or other fruit) and peanuts. Season with pepper.
  4. Divide the rice among bowls and top with sliced avocado and toasted coconut (below).

For the Toasted Coconut:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment. On the baking sheet, combine the coconut, coconut oil, maple syrup and soy sauce. Toss well to combine; making sure the coconut is well moistened.
  3. Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, stirring half way through cooking. The coconut is done when the coconut is light golden and toasted, be careful not to burn it!! Allow to completely cool and then store for up to one week in a sealed bag or glass jar.
