Coconut Rice is a favorite in many countries. In this Colombian-inspired recipe, coconut milk and lime zest add flavor elements to this easy-to-prepare dish. Often served with fish and seafood, it is also wonderful with spicy foods. Great for any occasion.
- 1 can (11.8 oz.) coconut water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup medium grain rice
- 2/3 cup (5 fl.-oz. can) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
- Grated lime zest (optional)
BRING coconut water to a boil in medium pot on medium heat. Add salt and rice. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until water is almost absorbed. Add evaporated milk. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until rice is tender. Some additional water maybe needed to reach desired texture of rice. Remove from heat. Stir in grated lime zest, to taste, if desired.
Review This Recipe
I am not a big fan of white rice, however, this was suprisingly delicious. It is very easy to make which I truly appreciate. My 9 year old twins who are reluctant to try different foods, really loved this too. They want me to make it again soon.
