Helpful hints

  • This is a higher potassium recipe due to the 2 servings of vegetables. You may want to limit vegetables or fruit at other meals or eat a smaller portion if you are on a lower potassium diet.
  • Serving size is for a main dish vegetarian meal. You can serve as a side dish instead. Reduce portion to 3/4 cup vegetable mixture, eight servings per recipe instead of four.
  • Fresh kaffir lime leaf can be found in Thai, Asian or Indian specialty grocery stores. Dried kaffir lime leaf can be found in specialty spice shops and some large grocery stores. The lime leaf is used for flavor; it is not edible. Throw it out at the end of cooking.
  • Adding a squeeze of lime juice at the end provides brightness and more flavors to the dish.
  • Use full fat, unsweetened coconut milk, not light or sweetened. One can contains about 14 ounces; measure out 8 ounces for the recipe.
  • Use jasmine, basmati or long grain rice.

Have not tried this yet but have a question about coconut milk. I use Almond Milk and Coconut Milk in my cereal every morning. The Coconut Milk label stipulates it has 55mg of potassium per cup which to me is fairly low. I am assuming this is because it is not a full fat milk. The Almond Milk label states 30mg of potassium per cup. I cannot find any information on phosphorus levels for either though. Can you help please? Dietitian comment: Both of those milk substitutes are acceptable. Since phosphorus is often unavailable dietitians recommend looking at the ingredient list and avoiding the products that contain phosphate additives. Look for the word "phos" and avoid.

Sounds a delish from the read. Is coconut milk considered high potassium? Dietitian comment: Yes coconut milk is quite high in potassium and phosphorus. It can still be used in small amounts. In this recipe 2 ounces coconut milk per serving contributes 55 mg phosphorus and 150 mg potassium.
