Found both in the Caribbean and parts of Africa(like Benin), coconut rice is rich and fragrant. The strong flavor goes particularly well with grilled meats and spicy sauces. I like to use brown rice, but have to cook it 45 minutes, so I use a little more water and keep an eye on it. Adapted from Global Table Adventures.
