Yield: 4 to 6 servings
I have a confession: rice is not my favorite thing. Fried rice is about the only exception I make…until now. This is the rice of your coconut dreams! Make this immediately.
1-1/2 cups jasmine rice, rinsed and drained
One 14-ounce can coconut milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
One 14-ounce can coconut cream (substituting with coconut milk is fine), shaken or stirred to combine
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
In a medium saucepan, combine the rice, coconut milk, 1-3/4 cups water, sugar and salt and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to medium-low, so the liquid is barely bubbling, cover and simmer until the rice is cooked and liquid is mostly absorbed, about 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and use a fork to fluff the rice. Add about 1/4 of the can of coconut milk, salt and sugar, and fluff again. Taste to ensure you don’t need more salt. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
