 This smoky coconut rice with wood ear mushrooms and bamboo shoots recipe is one of the best Asian rice recipes I’ve ever made and eaten so far! It’s absolutely delicious and you should try it too! 

This is by far one of the best Asian rice recipes I’ve ever tasted! It’s even better than my previous Curry Coconut Thai Rice recipe which I absolutely loved! All ingredients blend so perfectly together and the textures and flavors make this the perfect Asian comfort food recipe. Plus, it’s quite healthy too: low fat (it has healthy fats only from coconut milk), no frying, gluten-free and vegan!

Wood Ear mushrooms are incredibly good! I’ve never cooked with them until now, although I remember eating them in an Asian recipe a few years ago. Bamboo shoots are also very good in this combo. If you taste them just as they are they may not seem like much, as they have a bland corncob taste, but added in this mix they are perfect!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the AWESOME smoky flavor from smoked paprika. Just one teaspoon makes miracles!

  1. I was always scared of trying Asian recipes, as the ingredients seem so complicated and hard to find. But I actually made this rice and I don’t regret it at all! It was extremely good. I’m planning on trying more of your Asian recipes.
    I really appreciate the variety of your recipes, keep going! <3
