Rice is an easy, filling side dish. Dress your classic rice recipe up with a few flavorful ingredients. 


How to Make It

Bring coconut milk, salt, and 2 cups water to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in rice; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 20 to 25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir in lime zest and juice.

I found this to be rather bland. I added shredded coconut and some coconut extract for more flavor, but it was still missing something.

Fabulous! I sort of altered the recipe using 2 cups of the jasmine rice, 1 can of the light coconut milk and enough water to make 4 cups of liquid. It turned out great. Nice and fluffy! Can be used with many other dishes.

Since I first saw this recipe, I have made it 3 times in the last month. Excellent! My husband and kids love it. I've made it twice with the thai-pesto shrimp and then made it again last night for a hawaiin luau with BBQ shredded pork quesadillas with a mango salsa. Again, excellent! Everyone at the party asked for the recipe. Light, citrus flavor that could complement so many different kinds of meat! Highly recommend. A new favorite for us.
