Chai Tea Rice

Serves 6

5 cups water (Tea may boil down)

5 chai tea bags (I used Celestial Sweet Coconut Thai)

2 cups jasmine rice(or regular white rice)

1 medium purple onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, smashed

4 green onion tops, chopped

½ cup coconut milk

2tbl. Oil

3tsp. salt

½ tsp. red pepper flakes

1. In a pot bring water and tea bags to a boil.

2. In a separate pot over medium heat add oil and rice until rice is toasted.

3. Add both onions and garlic until softened. (Add more oil if needed)

4. Add 4 cups of tea, coconut milk, salt, and red pepper flakes.

5. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed.

*Variation- Once rice is cooked, fold in 4 oz. of Philadelphia's Pineapple Cream Cheese spread. Its to die for!!
