Description

Coconut flavored rice, the perfect accompaniment to curry.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Medium Grain Rice
  • 2 cups Regular Coconut Milk
  • 2 cups Water
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Or Sea Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup, Sucanat, Brown Sugar, Or Sweetener Of Choice
  • ½ teaspoons Coconut Flavoring (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons Tasted Coconut, Optional

Preparation

1. In a large, deep-sided pot, melt the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the rice and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 2 minutes.

2. Add the coconut milk, water, salt, sweetener, and flavoring if using. Stir well. Bring the rice to a boil, stirring occasionally to prevent the rice from burning.

3. When it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low. Place the lid askew on the pot, allowing some of the steam to escape. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the rice has absorbed all (or nearly all) of the coconut-water.

4. Turn off the heat. Cover the pot tightly with the lid and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes, or until you are ready to serve. When you are ready to serve, fluff the rice with a fork or chopsticks. Top with toasted coconut if desired.

I made this just to go with some grilled chicken and it was awesome. I cannot wait to make it with an Asian dish. My husband and all 4 kids liked it.

This was a great rice recipe! I didn’t have coconut oil on hand so I used olive oil as a sub and it still turned out great. Definitely a keeper of a recipe, thanks!
