Desiccated Coconut is an essential pantry ingredient, used in both sweet & savoury dishes. Its naturally sweetness makes it perfect for use in baking. Coconut can also be used to decorate cakes, biscuits & protein balls. Stir into porridge, flapjacks, smoothies & energy bars. Mix into curries for an added fresh coconut taste. Lightly toast & sprinkle over stir fries or seafood dishes. Use it as an alternative to breadcrumbs for a grain-free coating for prawns, tofu, fish or meat.
To toast desiccated coconut, heat it in a dry frying pan, stir constantly until it takes a golden-brown colour & you can smell hint of delicious nutty aroma, being careful not to burn the coconut.
