Coconut Cilantro Rice

Nothing like a good early morning run to get the day started. I am posting so much earlier than normal. Now that is light early in the morning I can get my runs in and start my day.

Well, as promised here is a delicious tropical side dish that will make you feel like you are on a tropical island somewhere. Wouldn’t that be nice? It does pair perfectly with the Grilled Hawaiian Chicken.  So take your taste buds on a vacation, it’s better than nothing, right?  I will take what I can get.

Coconut Cilantro Rice


1 cup coconut milk from a can
1 cup Water
1-2 Tbls. sugar (depends how sweet you want it)
1 tsp. lime juice
1 cup Jasmine Rice
½ bunch Cilantro leaves, Chopped


Combine coconut milk, water, sugar and lime juice in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir in the rice. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer about 15 minutes, until the rice is cooked and fluffy. Stir in the cilantro and serve immediately.
