  1. 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.
  2. A perfect companion for Recipe #482610. Loved the flavors of this fragrant rice cooked in coconut milk. Made for ZWT9.
  3. Served this with Thai chicken and peanut sauce, and it was lovely.<br/>The fragrance whilst cooking was just wonderful.<br/>Can't go wrong with this recipe, it was loved by all the family.
  4. Oh my goodness! This was the most moist and tasty rice. I served it as part of a Thai meal, and thought that I might put butter on the table because I had no real sauce to put over it. Forget about sauce or gravy here. This rice needs nothing more than a fork and a plate! DH raved over it also. This recipe is going into my Tried and True Faves. Thanks, lazyme! ZWT9
  5. Yum! I made this for breakfast this morning topping with a little fresh mango. When I started to make this I found I did not have enough coconut milk so whipped up a cup of Recipe #187372 to make up the difference and it worked out great. DH loved this. Thanks for the post.
