Coconut Rice

I'm a huge fan when it comes to Basmati rice.  In terms of rice, it's probably my favourite, unless we are taking about bacon fried rice, then that would reign supreme.  But since we're not, Basmati it is.

Question. How do you improve upon something you already adore? 
Simple.  Sub out water for coconut milk.  Welcome to our new go-to for cooking rice.  I blame Hawaii.  

Coconut Basmati Rice

1 cup Basmati rice
1 1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut

In medium saucepan, bring rice and coconut milk to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to steam for an additional 10 minutes.  Fluff with fork.  Top with sweetened coconut.

Yields: 4 servings
