Coconut, lime rice


  • 1 cup jasmine or medium grain rice
  • 1 (13.6 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 clove of finely chopped garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon of lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon of butter substitute
  • salt to taste

Combine the coconut milk and lime juice.  Add water if needed to meet the liquid measurement on your rice package.

Add liquid to a pan or rice cooker with rice, butter substitute and salt.  Cook according to directions (20 to 25 minutes).  Don’t lift the lid.  Instead, give the pan a gentle swirl.

When the rice is fully cooked fluff, add zest, add cilantro and serve.
