Coconut Lime Rice

  • Yield : 3 cups
  • Prep Time : 5m
  • Cook Time : 25m
  • Ready In : 30m

A little effort goes a long way when preparing rice.  The coconut milk & lime gives the flavor a little zip that pairs very well with curry dishes.


  • 1 C Light Coconut Milk
  • 2 C Water
  • dash of Sea Salt
  • 1 1/2 C Uncooked Jasmine (or other long grain) Rice, rinse prior to use
  • Zest & Juice of 1-2 Limes
  • Ground White Pepper


Step 1

Bring coconut milk, water & salt to a boil in saucepan over medium heat.

Step 2

Stir in rice. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cover for 20-25 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender to the tooth.

Step 3

Stir in lime zest & juice.

Step 4

Season with salt & white pepper to taste.

Short Cut: Use a rice cooker and add the lime juice and zest after it is cooked.

Think Out of the Ice Box: Try using orange juice & zest and a cardamom pod in place of the lime.
