Coconut Rice and Peanut Butter Sauce

so i've obviously recommitted to eating gluten free.  

i love my stir fry.  so so much.  but seriously, it's RIDDLED with gluten.  everything in it.  soy sauce... gluten.  store bought stir fry sauce... gluten.  packet of instant egg drop soup...  you guessed it.  now don't get me wrong, i made each and every one of those things for hubby for dinner, i just can't eat it.  but what i did make for me?  oh my dear sweet baby Thor, it was good.  i was very proud of myself and posted a picture of my dinner on facebook, and my friend Kathy asked for the recipe, so here you go.  i'm including the sites where i found the original recipe as well, but i'll list my substitutions/changes here

Pressure Cooker Coconut Rice  here

1/2 c brown rice
1 can coconut milk
1 c water
1tsp sugar
1/4 tsp Himalayan pink salt

dump everything in the pressure cooker and put on high.  once the top starts swinging (i have an older model), let it go for about 3 minutes, then turn off the heat.  when when it stops rocking all together, release the rest of the pressure, then open when the pressure is totally gone.  ALWAYS  follow proper safety instructions (especially if they differ from mine) when using a pressure cooker!

Peanut Butter Sauce here
1/4 c peanut butter
1/4 c water
2tbl lemon juice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2tbl apple cider vinegar 
1/4 tsp corn starch
mix everything together and heat up till it starts to bubble.  pour over stir fry veggies, and serve the whole thing over the coconut rice

  1. Oh! See, sir fry is actually one of the easier things to make gluten free! You can find all the necessary sauces and oils gluten free and not expensive. And egg drop soup is a cinch to make from scratch (chicken broth, cornstarch, water, egg). I've made sweet and sour chicken, sesame chicken, crockpot Mongolian beef, fried rice, all gluten free and cheap. Don't give up on your favorite foods! They can be transformed, I promise.
