cup uncooked brown rice
cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Aseptic Vegetable Broth
cup unsweetened coconut milk
cup shredded dried unsweetened coconut, toasted
tablespoons olive oil

tablespoon grated lime zest
avocado, pitted, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)

Heat the rice, broth and coconut milk in a 2 1/2-quart saucepan over high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 30 minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed. Remove the rice to a large bowl and let cool for 30 minutes.
Stir the rice, 1/3 cup coconut, oil, lime juice and lime zest in a serving bowl. Season to taste. Top with the avocado, mango, green onions, remaining coconut and the cilantro. Serve with the lime wedges.
