These roasted vegetables are one of my favorite side dishes, but I love it so much, I could eat it as a main dish several times a week! I usually serve this warm from the oven, but it may also be chilled and eaten as a salad.

Coconut milk gives this rice a higher fat content but adds a depth of flavor that makes it a favorite special occasion side dish.
