Coconut Rice with Bok Choy and Lime!

All I can say is... I love food like this!

2 tsp coconut oil
½ head of bok choy, stalks  (the white part) sliced 2 cm thick and greens chopped
2 shallots, minced
1 1/2cups basmati rice, rinsed
1 ½ cups water
¾ can coconut milk, unsweetened
1 lemon grass stalk, trimmed to 10 cm and smashed
sea salt and pepper
2 TBL minced fresh coriander
 1 tsp grated lime zest
 2 tsp lime juice

Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat until shimmering.
Add bok choy stalks and shallot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes.

Stir in rice, water, coconut milk, lemongrass and 2 tsp sea salt. Bring to a boil.
Cover. Reduce heat to lowest possible, and put on smallest burner.  Let simmer 18 minutes.
Fold in fresh coriander, lime zest and juice, and bok choy greens. Discard lemon grass stalk.  MMMMMmmmmm
