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
IN ORDER TO GET FAMILY MEMBERS TO EAT MORE RICE, I AM CONSTANTLY TRYING NEW AND DIFFERENT RECIPES. THIS ONE WAS A HIT WITH MY FAMILY, ESPECIALLY WHEN I ALTERNATED LIME-HERB GRILLED SHRIMP TO THE MEAL PLATTER. SO GLAD IT WAS AVAILABLE FOR ME TO TRY. NEXT TIME I PLAN TO PAIR IT WITH GRILLED SALMON AND SAUTEED SPINACH. THIS A WINNER.
