Coconut Rice

I will preface this by saying that my kids who don't eat rice ate EVERY grain on their plate.  Enough said. :) This rice sounds sweet, but it is only slightly sweet and enough savory to make it awesome with dishes like Beef Bulgogi and the Bacon-Wrapped Teriyaki Chicken Skewers.  Try it out!

Coconut Rice
Sara Wells and Kate Jones (Our Best Bites)

2 cups white or jasmine rice (I prefer jasmine)
1 - 14oz. can coconut milk
2 cups water
1 tsp kosher salt
Splash of white vinegar
2-3 tsp granulated sugar
1/4 cup chopped green onions, plus chopped green onion tops
Black pepper to taste

Combine rice, coconut milk, water, salt, vinegar, and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Turn heat to low and cover for 20 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.  Allow to stand 5 minutes. Add chopped onion bottoms, black pepper (if desired), and additional salt if necessary.

Garnish with green onion tops and serve immediately.

  1. I have to add that I prefer to add double (or at the very least 1 1/2) times the coconut milk. It leaves the rice a little more moist and I think adds to the deliciousness! A big hit with my family as well!
