Coconut Rice

This rice tastes so good stand alone or as a side for any main dish cooked with pineapple! Think Pina Colada ;-)


  • 1 1/4 cups Basmati rice
  • 2 (10 oz.) cans coconut milk


Rinse and drain rice well.


Combine rice and coconut milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer on low for 20 to 25 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.

Pina Colada? Ah, you spoke the magic words. If the rice tastes even a little bit like a Pina Colada, we'll love it. Anything with pineapple and coconut is a winner around our house. Will sure give this a try. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Songwriter, You gave me an idea to simply enjoy the rice with room temperature pineapple chunks stirred in after cooking it as a treat instead of with a pineapple flavored meal. ;-) Thanks!
