So here’s how to make Low Carb Coconut Enhanced White Rice.

Prepare the night before, or at the very least, take an hour to relax.

Cooking Time: Approximately 30 minutes

Serves: 6–8 persons

Let’s talk about rice, something that many of you keto warriors may be avoiding. Now, hear me out before you get all crazy and yell, “rice is a carb nightmare!”, allow me to explain some of the things I have up my sleeve.

Here’s the thing, though: When you cook rice, let it cool before serving, then add coconut oil while it cooks, you’re essentially transforming the rice into something entirely new. This is not your typical dish of rice—rather, it’s like rice—but delicious rice on steroids. Because this approach reduces the glycemic reaction, your blood sugar won’t jump as much, allowing you to maintain lean, mean gains.

For many of the women I work with who follow a high-fat, low-carb (HFLC) diet, having the correct kind of carbohydrates can make all the difference in the world. It helps regulate those hormones and maintains a high level of energy. While a strict ketogenic diet has its place, particularly for severe health conditions, a little carbohydrate activity at night can be quite beneficial.

I love to pair this recipe with some delicious chicken curry or even use it to make some homemade sushi.

Battle between Brown and White Rice

Be ready for a shocking revelation: brown rice isn’t the healthiest option that everyone believes it to be. Startled? Yes, that is a typical response. It turns out that brown rice contains phytic acid, which can cause digestive problems, and arsenic, depending on where it comes from.

So, I’m not advocating eating rice all the time. In other words, pay attention to your body. When choosing white rice, let it cool down and then add additional fats, such as coconut oil or brain octane oil, and you’re good to go.

Double-Hack for Cooking Rice:

Cook and Cool: When rice is cooked and then cooled, some of the digestible starch is converted to resistant starch. This results in a slower absorption rate, which lessens the sugar rush.

Add Coconut Oil: Adding coconut oil to rice during cooking helps bind the oil to the starch, converting it into a resistant starch that won’t cause your blood sugar to spike.

When he described this procedure on his podcast, Dave Asprey of Bulletproof definitely hit the mark. When compared to regular white rice, it may increase the resistant starch content by as much as fifteen times. Incredible, isn’t it?

Components to Make This Recipe Shine:

  • Two cups of raw white rice
  • Three glasses of purified water
  • 4 tsp ghee or coconut oil
  • a one-inch-long ginger root piece
  • One 14-ounce can of full-fat coconut milk
  • One tsp salt and more to taste

How to Prepare This Wonder Rice:

Begin Boiling the Water: Fill a large saucepan with boiling water.

Rinse Your Rice: To start removing some of the starch while you wait, give your rice a quick rinse in cold water.

Cooking It Up Add the ginger, coconut oil, and rice. Once the majority of the water has been absorbed, simmer it for 15 to 20 minutes while covered and the heat is reduced.

Additional Options: Add a teaspoon of salt and the coconut milk. Cook, covered, until the rice is perfectly al dente and the liquid is completely absorbed.

Cool Down: Place the pot in the refrigerator and allow the rice to steep for approximately one hour. Portion out the sushi to hasten the chilling process if you’re rolling it or in a hurry.
When it’s time to eat, simply reheat it slightly, and you’ll have a tasty dish that will keep your body functioning at maximum capacity.
