1 cup white rice, rinsed
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut milk (here is the link to the one I buy but you can also find it at most grocery stores, I just like this one since it's just made out of coconut milk -- nothing else!)
1 1/2 cup water
Add the water and coconut milk to a medium pot over medium heat until it reaches a slight boil
In the meantime, rinse your rice in a strainer
Once the water/coconut milk combo is boiling add in the coconut oil (this will help prevent the rice from sticking and adds to the coconut flavor... win!) and a pinch of sea salt
Stir a couple times until it's all combined
Add in your rice, cover and reduce to a simmer
Let it simmer for about 15 minutes until all of the liquid is absorbed
I will usually stir it once or twice during the process to help keep the rice fluffy
Once the water is absorbed, turn off the heat, remove the lid, gently stir with a spoon and let stand for about 10 mins
**This is such a simple recipe that pairs well with almost every other protein and vegetable that I make for the week. I make one big batch at the beginning of the week and we're set.
I will mix it with my greens during my lunch as a side for my usual salad and Max loves to pair it with his beef, chicken, sausage, or fish for his dinner. You can easily scale and adjust the ingredients to make the appropriate amount for your needs.
