This easy basmati coconut rice recipe is a simple way to mix up your side dish staples. The richness of the coconut milk give this rice an addictive flavor. Does coconut rice taste like coconut? Yes, it does have a subtle coconut flavor which compliments the nuttiness of the basmati rice. It's important to grab full fat unsweetened coconut milk. Otherwise this rice will be way to sweet!

- Cook the coconut rice by bringing two cans of full fat unsweetened coconut milk, 1 cup water, and 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt to a boil in a medium pot
- Stir 2 cups of white rice into the pot, cover with a lid, turn the heat to low and cook for 25-30 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed
So easy and delicious!
