The Incredible Coconut

Coconuts aren’t for everybody but in my house we love them. Coconuts are versatile and delicious. Crack them open with a hammer to expose the white flesh and harvest the coconut meat for all your scrumptious recipes. I like to use them in my impromptu curried vegetable dishes.

First I roast them in the oven for an even nuttier flavor. I then mince them into teenie, tiny pieces, and throw them into my many (mostly veggie) stir fry’s and curries, creating a fragrant and rich flavor. Coconuts are sweet and nutty with lots of nutritious oils in them.

Here is a Wikipedia link to tell you all about this incredible, versatile, and healthy fruit (often mistaken for a nut):  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut

Yum Food! Yum Art!
