Change it up •For added texture and coconut flavor, add ¼ to ½ cup of unsweetened shredded coconut with the rice, or garnish with toasted unsweetened shredded coconut. •If you have a rice cooker, simply add all of the ingredients to the rice cooker, turn it on, and cook as you would cook plain rice.


Coat the bottom of a large saucepan (one with a tight-fitting lid) with vegetable oil or vegetable oil spray. Cook rice according to the instructions on the package, adding a pinch of salt and replacing half of the water with coconut milk. (You probably won’t need to use the full 2 cups of coconut milk.) When rice is cooked, fluff with a fork, and serve hot. Serves 6 to 8. Make it ahead Coconut rice can be kept, covered, in the refrigerator for a couple of days. To serve, place in a microwave-safe bowl, sprinkle with a bit of water, cover with plastic wrap, and heat briefly in the microwave.
