Top Review by KateL

Coconut power, no subtlety! Possibly the richest rice, on the sweet side, it was a good counterpoint to Recipe#33875 and simply steamed broccoli. I scaled the recipe to 2 2/3 servings to use one 14.5-oz. can of coconut milk, and the rest of the measurements worked out easily. Stay close to a recommended 1/2 cup serving size because this was very filling. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
