      This was such a nice rice recipe for a Caribbean meal. I served this with leftover Honey Lime Chicken and Blueberry and Mango Fruit Salad for ZWT5 Jammin Java Jivers. Thanks for posting, Scarlett!

      My whole family really enjoyed this Coconut Rice. It was very tasty. And it's such an easy recipe to make. I didn't realize until I started making this dish that the brand of coconut milk I usually buy is no longer 15 ounces---it's now only 13 ounces. Well, I knew I needed the right amount of liquid so the rice texture would be right, so I added enough water to make it 2 full cups of liquid. I worried it would taste washed out, but it didn't. It was perfect. This will be my "usual" rice recipe to go with main dishes that have a tropical feel to them. It was wonderful! Made for ZWT5.
