Easy, Light Coconut Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by lilsweetie

This recipe is so fragrant and creamy, nobody can guess that it uses chicken stock to reduce fat/calories without reducing flavor. It is mild enough to be paired with any dish yet tasty enough to be eaten on its own. You could use jasmine rice instead if you prefer.

This is a great rice recipe!! It comes out nice and fluffy, not soupy. Made exactly as written and will make again! DH loves white rice with butter, salt/pepper but I am not a big fan; this will be made instead has a subtle flavor so it can be paired with almost anything. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
