Recipe by lolablitz

Warm, creamy, comforting and healthy in my book, this is a riff on Paula Deen's Coconut Mango rice. It matches the health-benefits of coconut milk with those of brown rice. Sodium is reduced from her recipe as well. I served this with roasted, caramelized red onion, butternut squash, eggplant, beets and a simple roast chicken. Use a nicely ripened mango. *The nutrition values are not correct, 2 servings of this rice should yield approx 340 calories a piece, you can reduce the calories further by using light coconut milk.
