Coconut Rice

>> 5.14.2010

This is one of our favorite ways to make rice.  It is very mild and fragrant and compliments many other dishes.  I use the leftovers to make fried rice even more flavorful.  The kids love it! 

*2 cups rice ( I prefer white Jasmine, brown Basmati is pictured)
*1 TBS coconut oil
*10 oz coconut milk
*cilantro to garnish

Start by rinsing your rice well and cooking off the excess water.  Add your coconut oil to the rice and cook until fragrant and rice begins to brown.  Add coconut milk and enough water to cover by about 1/2 inch.  Stir and let settle.  Bring to a boil and then turn the heat down and let simmer until cooked through.  (About 20 minutes.)  Turn the heat off and let rest about 5 minutes.  I love to garnish ours with cilantro, although we have also used toasted almonds and toasted coconut with great results.
