I wanted to share this awesome recipe with you. This is probably the best rice I’ve ever had in my life and I know you will like it.
Spoiler: It DOES NOT taste like coconut.
This is extremely simple.
1 3/4 Cup Water
1 Can (13.5 oz.) Coconut Milk
1 tsp. Salt
2 Cups White Rice (not instant or par-boiled)
1-2 Tbs. Chopped Scallions
Alright, hold on tight, this is super complicated.
- Bring Water, Salt and Coconut milk to a boil in a medium saucepan. Break up coconut cream chunks if they don’t melt fast enough for your liking.
- Add Rice and simmer, covered, for 15-20 minutes or until almost all the water is gone. It will look a bit wet.
- Remove from heat and let sit 5 minutes covered.
- Stir in chopped scallions and serve. Salt to taste if you need it (although you probably won’t).
That’s it. It’s done. Literally just throw all of it in a pot and forget about it until the timer goes off.
If you have a hard time finding coconut milk, it’s usually in the Asian section at the grocery store. Don’t buy the “lite” stuff either. Just get regular coconut milk.
Cooking Tip: Be sure to simmer rice on low heat. Burnt rice is the #1 complaint from anti-rice-cooking people. It’s not hard to do, just make sure it’s very low heat. My propane burner is almost off when I do rice. I can just see the flames.
Enjoy! If you make it, let me know what you think!
