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.

Ingredients

Directions

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.
