I HATE fresh coconut - to me, nothing ruins a dessert more than fresh or shredded coconut - ugh.
However, recently I've come to realize the culinary genius of coconut milk!
Curried Vegetables (from How it all Vegan)
Coconut French Toast
Sweetened-Condensed Coconut Milk Syrup
and Sweet Sticky Rice
I'll post pics and recipes soon.
I'm frantically trying to search the interwebs for more coconut milk recipes!
