this is almost good enough to eat as dessert!
Top Review by Sackville
I had never thought of cooking rice in coconut milk but for a Thai meal it really adds a lot of taste! I did find the syrup too sweet for my taste with an otherwise savory meal, so I think I would leave it off next time, but you're right -- it would make a good desert with the syrup!
- 2 cups glutinous rice
- 2 cups coconut milk

- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
