Coconut Cilantro Plantain Rice Risotto Recipe

For our food processor connoisseurs, this one's for you! The coconut cilantro plantain rice risotto is an all-time favorite of mine, and, not to mention, it's incredibly easy to make. Plantain rice is one of those things that not many people talk about, but very much should be! It's as easy as taking a few green plantains and passing them through the shredder attachment of your food processor. And, I have to admit, until I started making this plantain rice, I had NEVER used the shredder attachment of my food processor before. Back in 2014, I wasn't into cooking like I am now. So I actually threw out the shredder attachment for my food processor and the instruction booklet, thinking, "My kitchen is so small, and I don't have space for these extra 'attachments,' and I probably won't use them." BIG MISTAKE! So when I had the idea to start making plantain rice, I used a handheld grater in my kitchen (usually used for cheese) to shred the plantains. After making about ten batches of risotto this way, I called my mom and asked her to bring over the food processor she owns from 1979 — the year she and my Dad got married — and she STILL has her shredder attachment! So, I am thrilled to share this absolutely delicious creamy plantain rice risotto, which begins with a few easy steps and kitchen staples.
