Coconut oil: my new obsession. Slightly coconut-y, buttery and creamy tasting all at the same time. Perfect as a butter substitute because it’s great over vegetables or plain pasta, like orzo.
I’ve taken a strong liking (addiction?) to orzo with coconut oil and sea salt. I’m aware this seems a bit weird, so I don’t know how keen I am to recommend it on my blog as something you must try. I, however, am in love with it and if you are feeling adventurous, give it a try! Another thing I love which people seem to find weird is dipping peanut butter or tuna sandwiches in tomato soup. I will not eat a bowl of tomato soup unless I have one of those two sandwiches to dip in it.
Friday I tried adding black beans to my coconut orzo to make it seem like a bit more of a meal, and I think it worked a treat. Black beans work so well in either sweet or spicy things, and they were perfect in this as well.
So, yeah. Try it or not, but at least now you can’t say you haven’t heard of coconut oil.
