This simple recipe is a great way to spice up your regular old rice. It goes well with any Asian inspired dish, or by itself as a side. I am still trying to perfect coconut rice, like the kind you get from Thai restaurants, but until I figure it out this will have to do. If you know how to make Real coconut rice (the type that you can serve with sticky mango as dessert) and you aren't telling me. I will find you.
Coconut Ginger Jasmine Rice
1 cup Jasmine rice
1 3/4 cup water
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
1 tablespoon fresh ginger
In a small/medium pot add water, rice, coconut milk and shredded coconut.
Peel ginger and mince. Or if you have dicovered the awesomeness of of Gourmet Garden, just squeeze tablespoon into the pot and stir to combine.
|Gourmet Garden is my new favorite thing....ever.|
Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, and serve with your favorite curry or stir fry.
