Thai Turkey Coconut Red Rice

     I am lovin' Vitacost's new line of rice!!!  So flavorful and easy to whip up!!!  I took my two daughters to China and then onto Thailand one year for Sprinbreak, so this fun Thai Coconut Red Rice mix brought me right back to the culture of the Orient.  So save yourself a few bucks and throw this together in minutes!!!  Exercise your creativity by planning divine toppings to round out a complete meal  ;)

Ingredients for 4~
13oz can Lite Coconut Milk
1 cup Vitacost Thai Coconut Red Rice
1 Tablespoon EVOO
1 Yellow Onion, diced
1 Tablespoon chopped jarred Garlic
Dash Cayenne
1 pound 99% lean ground Turkey
1 Green Pepper, cleaned and sliced
1/2 cup Hot Pepper Peach Preserves, Robert Rothschild
Fresh Pineapple for garnish

     Heat Coconut Milk and enough water to equal 2 cups in pot til boiling, stir in Rice,cover and reduce to simmer til liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.  Meanwhile, heat EVOO in skillet, add Onions, Garlic and Cayenne til golden brown.  Add Turkey meat til cooked thru, crumbling while cooking.  Stir in Green Pepper slices and Preserves til Peppers are crisp tender.  Spoon a fourth of the Turkey mixture on top of a fourth of the rice, and finish by garnishing with fresh Pineapple chunks.  Enjoy  :)
