Coconut Rice

Perfect accompaniment to South Pacific dishes… Thai and Polynesian inspired foods especially.

Size: 6 servings

2 cups jasmine rice
1 cup coconut cream (Coco Lopez brand is good)
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp kosher salt


Combine rice, coconut cream, sugar, salt, and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring just to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar, then cover and reduce heat to low. (Alternatively, cook rice in an electric rice steamer.) Cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 40-45 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork; cover and let sit for 20 minutes.
