This is extremely smooth and creamy - almost reminds me of risotto in texture. I used short-grain rice and a 1:1 mix of water and broth, instead of 2 cups of broth. Makes a good side dish or a lunch with some fruit.

Something a little different, but very tasty. Liked the creaminess of the rice, and the hint of ginger. I served this with a tomato chicken dish I make. Thanks for posting. =)

Such a delicious recipe! I only made one change, and that was to omit the green onion and lemon rind, and to stir in 2 tablespoons of orange marmalade instead. I also added salt and pepper. This is the PERFECT mix of sweet and savory! I did taste the rice before stirring in the orange, and it was fabulous without it too! I served it with Citrus Ginger Dump Chicken, which is the reason I added the orange marmalade, to compliment the flavors, and with steamed carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli. I did use Jasmine rice, and I had exactly 1/2 cup coconut milk left from my can! It was a wonderful meal that I will absolutely repeat!

Creamy, but need to up the ginger and lemon next time. Served with soy coconut chicken, cucumber salad and stir fry bok choy. A keeper.

This is definitely the best coconut rice EVER! Creamy, smooth and light! We loved this!! Made with Salmon #109817 and Succotash #9129, all the flavors accented each other very well. Thank you for a new favorite and a often made recipe in our house!

Wonderful rice! Have made coconut rice on other occasions but this is the best I've ever eaten. Loved the addition of lemon rind and green onions at the end. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting this Sueie. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

Thumbs up all around! Served it with Thai-Style Ground Beef (#150739) and not a bit left! Great side dish that we will be making again!

A great side dish! We had it with Spicy Grilled Pineapple (#112555) and Citrus Chicken (#15698) in the middle of winter, so we got that great summer-y flavor! Thanks for a great recipe!
