Ingredients
  1. 1 cup jasmine rice
  2. 1 cup coconut milk
  3. 3/4 cup water
  4. 1 lime, zested
  5. 2 tsp. fresh lime juice
  6. 4 tsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro
  7. 1/8 tsp. salt
  8. 1/8 tsp. pepper
Instructions
  1. Rinse rice under cold water until water runs clear. This gets rid of some starch from the rice so the rice is not too sticky.
  2. In a large sauce pan, add the rice, coconut milk, water, salt and pepper.
  3. Bring to a simmer and cook with the lid partially covering on medium-low heat. Do this until all the liquid is absorbed. Approx 15 mins (sometimes a min or two less).
  4. Immediately after removing from heat, use a fork to fluff the rice. Then stir in the lime zest, lime juice and cilantro. Serve immediately.
  5. Have each individual salt and pepper to taste. ENJOY!
