Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp. coconut oil
  • 2 cups Thai jasmine-scented white rice
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 heaping Tbsp. dry shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Method

    1. Rub oil over the bottom of a deep-sided pot. You will also need a tight-fitting lid.
    2. Place rice, coconut milk, water, shredded coconut, and salt in the pot and set over medium-high to high heat. Stir occasionally to keep rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot and burning.
    3. Once the coconut-water has begun to gently bubble, stop stirring and reduce heat to low (just above minimum). Cover tightly with a lid and let simmer 15-20 minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed by the rice.
    4. Replace the lid and turn off the heat, but leave the covered pot on the burner to steam another 5-10 minutes, or until you're ready to eat.
