Easy Coconut Rice

Rice has long been one of my favorite foods. When I was young and we would go to my grandmother’s house she would always make a side of rice just for me to go with whatever meal we were having. That preference has been transferred to my son so it makes frequent rotations in our meal plans. I love this one because with very few ingredients you get rice that is perfectly seasoned and so easy.

  • 2 cups jasmine rice
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Using a bowl and fine mesh strainer, rinse the rice with cold water until clear. (This step is optional if you want stickier rice for something like sushi. I normally skip this step because of time management, but the last time I made it I took the time the rinse the rice and it was definitely fluffier.) After the rice is rinsed, add it to a pot with the water, coconut milk, salt and sugar. Bring to boil, then reduce to low, cover and cook for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, leave the lid on and let the rice sit for 5 additional minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
