Spicy Beet with Coconut and Rice

flexcook's picture
The hard and crunchy beets are transformed into a wonderfully tender and flavorful dish. The sweet taste of beets, onions, and coconut is slightly tempered by the heat of the chili. This is a very colorful dish, because the beets impart a reddish-purple hue. I love to serve this for my guests, for the wow factor! This can be a stand-alone entrée or a colorful side dish to any meal.
