Coconut rice

This was pretty good. I'd cut down on the coconut next time, because my husband thought there was too much. I got this recipe from recipezaar, but heavily edited it.

Coconut Rice
3 cups cooked brown rice: 0.62
1/2 c. toasted macadamias (leftover from our last trip to Hawaii??): $1.50? If I didn't have them, I'd use something else
1/2 c. toasted coconut: 0.25
2 T. canola oil: 0.08
1 carrot, diced: 0.08
1/2 cup frozen peas: 0.25
juice of 1 lime: 0.20
2 cloves garlic: 0.10
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin: 0.02
1/2 tsp cinnamon: 0.02
1/4 tsp cardamom: 0.05
total: $3.27 for four 1-cup servings, or $0.82 each

Pre-cook the brown rice, 'cuz I'm lazy.

Dice carrot and microwave with peas for 3 mins to cook.

Saute garlic, peas and carrot in oil for a couple of minutes. Add spices & saute 30 sec. Add rice & saute until heated through. Toss with lime juice, macadamias, and coconut.

Later on we mixed this with diced chicken for leftovers.
