While coconut water is a fantastic addition to smoothies or refreshingly great to enjoy on its own, this household staple is also a fine cooking ingredient. Here are three easy ways to cook with coconut water:
1.Prawns with Coconut Water and Lime Dressing
Paired with lime juice, coconut water is fantastic to use as a dressing. Add a dash of garlic and ginger, season with salt and pepper and drizzle over some freshly cooked prawns. You can also use this dressing on your favourite salads.
2.Coconut and Fruit Bircher Muesli
Kick start your morning with a nutritious bircher muesli. Try using coconut water as the soaking medium for your oats, soaking your oats the night before not only saves you precious time but improves the sweetness and texture of traditional bircher. Mix the pre-soaked oats with yoghurt and honey in the morning and throw in some of your favourite fruits. Add in some nuts or seeds for that needed texture.
Coconut milk, a staple ingredient in much loved curries, is high in fat, so try substituting it with coconut water. A pinch of sour cream will add that much needed richness to the curry along with zesty lime juice and fiery red curry paste.
