  • Place oil in a separate (large) saucepan. Add onion and saute for 2 minutes until fragrant.

  • Pour in rice and stir so that all grains of rice are coated. Add broth (1 cup at a time) and stir until liquid has been absorbed. After all broth has been absorbed, stir in coconut milk.

  • Drain the Bruce's® Yams Cut Sweet Potatoes, reserving 1/4 cup syrup. Add syrup to rice and cook until rice starts to become light and creamy.

  • Stir in sweet potatoes (chunks will break down), cider vinegar, parsley, salt, and pepper. When incorporated, remove from heat and stir in butter (optional).

  • Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with freshly grated lime zest.

I actually didn't think it looked all that appetizing while making it but it has a nice rich flavor offset by the sweetness of the yams and adding the lime zest at the end is a nice tangy touch. I nearly doubled everything (made it for family) but used a 40 oz can of yams and the balance was still good. Didn't change anything else I usually make recipes the way they're given to me first then tweak it if I make it again. Some prep involved but nothing too intensive. Solid recipe! Read More

This was so easy and tasted amazing! I used green onions and fennel leaves instead of parsley because that is what so had. Read More
