There's so many forms of coconut as an ingredient, and each can be used in a wide variety of foods. It may be a vegetable dish using Virgin Coconut Oil "(VCO"), a Thai style soup, a spicy Indian curry, a tasty cookie, or even a rich and creamy non-dairy custard...
The most natural forms of coconut to use in your recipes include:
- dry shredded coconut (unsweetened, please)
- coconut milk
- coconut cream (like condensed milk, but made from coconut)
- creamed coconut (a delicious raw, spreadable treat)
- coconut flakes (larger pieces of dried coconut)
- coconut oil (get pure, unrefined virgin coconut oil, please)
- and of course, fresh coconut!
I usually make at least one coconut dish a day, by simply using Virgin Coconut Oil to sautee onions, melt over steamed vegetables, or to stir into a bowl of soup.
You can drizzle warm coconut oil on popcorn too.
I love eggs & omelets cooked in virgin coconut oil!
If you have a recipe using coconut that you'd like altered to fit more within the guidelines for a candida diet - send it in! We'll do our best to revamp the ingredient list and post the "New and Improved" version here for all to share.
I buy virgin coconut oil in bulk, online, at least a gallon at a time. It's more economical that way, and has a great shelf life.
Take a look at the recipe links below, and check back often, I'll be adding more soon. Here are some of our favorite recipes using coconut! Yum!
