Coconut Rice

A simple and flavorful side dish that pairs perfectly with chicken, shrimp, or even a veggie stir fry!


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup quick cook rice
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon cooped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  3. Add rice and salt into the boiling liquid and cover. Cook over low heat for about 15 minutes, or until all the liquid is evaporated. Stir occasionally.
  4. Stir green onions and cilantro into rice. Serve immediately, or allow to fully cool and refrigerate for up to three days.
