  • 1 Can Coconut Milk full fat
  • 1.5 Cups Water
  • 2 Cups White Rice any type of white rice will do!


  • Whisk coconut milk and water together in a medium nonstick sauce pan or rice cooker
  • Add rice and stir to combine
  • *If using rice cooker, place lid on and cook until rice cooker has indicated that it is done*
  • Put lid on saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  • Reduce heat to medium low and slightly offset lid so that steam can be released while cooking, and to prevent boil-over.
  • Cook for about 15 minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Fluff rice, and test to make sure doneness. The rice should be tender, if it is still not quite cooked completely, return lid to an offset and cook an additional 3-5 minutes, or until done.
  • Serve hot with your favorite main course!


  • Try using the leftovers for breakfast! Add some milk, cinnamon and sugar for a delightful breakfast treat! Add your favorite oatmeal toppings, such as raisins and toasted nuts for a delicious twist! 
  • Serve along side my Crockpot Hawaiian Chicken!
