Lime-Peanut Rice Pilaf

Recipe by Diana Adcock

This is a great side dish to any Thai or Asian meal. If you use the vegetable stock this is a great vegetarian side dish!

Great recipe! Made this to go with asian braised ribs made in a slow cooker. My husband and kids loved it. Used coconut oil for the oil in the recipe and would do that again - gave the rice a very faint taste of coconut. Will definitely make again.
