This simple coconut rice recipe will enhance any Caribbean meal. We love coconuts and if you do too then you will love this side dish and find yourself making it often. It’s bursting with all the sweet fragrant coconut flavors and aroma.
(Also great with Thai food.)
1 cup uncooked rice, we used jasmine rice
1 cup coconut milk
1 1/2 cups coconut water
1/4 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
Method of Prep:
In a pot, mix together the coconut milk and coconut water, bring to a boil over Med/High heat.
Once the pot is boiling, stir in the rice. Allow it to boil again.
Put a lid on the pot, and reduce the heat to Low. Simmer covered, stirring once during cooking. Simmer for 18-20 minutes, or until the rice is tender.
Remove from the heat and stir in the sweetened coconut.
This rice pairs so well with our Jamaican Vegan Pattie!
Serve hot, Enjoy!
